We have a proven track record when it comes to fighting for our members at arbitration and we created the Grievance Investigation Process (GIP), a quicker and more efficient way to resolve grievances.
With the help of our in-house legal counsel, we’ve notched recent wins in arbitration cases involving wrongful terminations, overpayments, denial of union leave, unauthorized pay deductions and many more. Our legal counsel has taken arbitrations all the way to the Supreme Court of Canada – and won for our members.
For GIP cases, MAHCP members are not forced to have their grievances vetted through a committee in order for them to be brought forward. YOU deal directly with YOUR LRO.
