Federal Labour Board Hearing Update

 

 

The IAM along with our legal counsel, Ginnell, Bauman & Watt, Hudbay and the Federal Labour Board met this afternoon and participated in a conference call today at 11:00 am.

 

Our complaint against Hudbay consists of unfair bargaining and the illegal use of replacement workers.

 

The particulars from the call were future scheduling of further meetings, location of further meetings, number of witnesses that will be relied on by each party, contractors that are currently on site, clarification of several items from our original complaint, 40 outstanding contracting out grievances awaiting arbitration, and the broken grievance procedure.

 

The conference call ended with the board advising the parties that they will make a decision next week if a hearing is necessary or they may make a ruling based on the written submissions that have been previously submitted
