Vice-Chair denies employer request to dismiss
July 13, 2010 In a decision dated June
30, 2010, Vice-Chair Abramsky dismissed the employer’s motion to dismiss all
remedies related to the Hunt grievance.
The employer wanted the decision dismissed
because they said the union did not comply with a previous Board order to
supply particulars. In contrast, in her ruling, Vice-Chair
Abramsky said, “…the union made substantial
efforts to comply” with her order.
Those substantial efforts were your efforts.
Given the enormity of information you were asked to gather, it is
astonishing that it could be pulled together so quickly.
Moving forward, we have been given six (6)
months for the final submission of the information you supplied regarding
the hours spent producing and certifying transcripts. During that six-month
period, you need to gather as much information as possible to prove that you
are owed compensation. Examples of documents that we need would be your
calendars, transcript orders, and times from the tape machines/computers for
verification. The final deadline for submission of all Court Reporter
information is December 30, 2010.
On July 22nd, we will begin to present evidence
for individual members. We will, of course, begin with those who have
provided full details as outlined above.
You should submit your information directly to
Marg Simmons, Inclusion Officer at
firstname.lastname@example.org or by fax to 416-443-8618.
We will continue to update you as any new
information becomes available.
