‘Pervasive bias’ fuels B. C. rights panel on worker complaint, lawyer says
The union that took the employment discrimination complaint to the human rights tribunal did not even represent the Latin Americans in the workplace. The 30 men had voted to remove themselves from the Construction and Specialized Workers Union, Local 1611 (CSWU) in 2006.
Regardless, the union was allowed to proceed with its human rights complaint.
What’s more, Mr. Gall says, the human rights panel disregarded an earlier B. C. Labour Relations Board ruling over an almost identical complaint brought by CSWU.
