After a series of negative comments and behaviour directed toward various colleagues, a senior clerical associate who worked at SaskTel was terminated.

The 53-year-old employee, who was not identified by name in the arbitration hearing, had worked for the telecommunications company since 1993. But after a managerial review of her conduct toward others was completed, the grievor was dismissed on March 7, 2017.

The worker was employed in the assignment centre which provided technical and administrative support to the company’s installers.
