Regarding the KFA’s complaint to the Labour Relations Board alleging unfair labour practice the Vice Chair found “based on the materials on file and events as they have unfolded to date, that this aspect of the complaint pertains to a difference about the administration of Article 2.01 [Management Rights] of the Collective Agreement. That difference should be decided by an arbitrator. An arbitrator will be in a position to provide an adequate remedy in the event she finds a breach of the Collective Agreement or finds that the Employer is estopped from exercising its legal rights.” The Vice Chair found that the matter was not one of bargaining in bad faith or an act of interference, but was a decision to unilaterally implement significant changes under the Pilot Project. He characterized this as a dispute between the parties under the collective agreement.
The KFA will now take this matter to arbitration as soon as possible.
