You have worked hard for months and sometimes years. However, for one reason or another, you now have a dispute with your employer. Can you trust that your employer will do “the right thing” and take care of your interests when it matters most to you? Does the human resources department work for you or for your employer? Sometimes you need your own advocate. This is where we can help you.
We assist employees with many types of workplace disputes. These include claims for unpaid wages, termination or severance packages, human rights or discrimination matters, constructive or wrongful dismissal claims, and employment contracts.

You have paid your union dues for months if not years. You have done so under the assumption that your union will protect you and act in your best interests in the event that you have a dispute with your employer.
The time has come for your union to help because you have been unfairly suspended without pay, terminated, harassed or bullied, discriminated against, or you raised concerns over your health and safety in the workplace and your employer has retaliated against you. But your union does not always step up in your time of need. This is where we can help.
Your union has the exclusive authority to represent all employees in the bargaining unit when dealing with their employer. In return your union is obligated by law to treat you fairly and advance your grievance as it relates to your collective agreement and other laws governing your employment, without acting in a manner that is arbitrary, discriminatory or in bad faith. If they do not advance your grievance for illegitimate reasons they have violated the law.
In the event that your union has not fairly represented you, you have the legal right to file a complaint with the Ontario Labour Relations Board or the Canada Industrial Relations Board, depending on which jurisdiction your employment falls under. The process for filing a complaint and the procedures for resolving your matter can be intimidating and a challenge to navigate on your own.
Fortunately, UnionComplaint can assist you in advancing your complaint against your union. Contact us today to schedule your consultation and learn how we can help you get the justice you deserve.
