H.Y. Louie Company Ltd. v. Teamsters Local Union No. 213 (2013), 228 L.A.C. (4th) 94

The grievance had to do with the interpretation of a collective agreement as it related to new employees who were hired at a rate higher than the lowest rate on the wage scale. The Union’s argument was that the employees hired at a higher rate did not have to work all of the hours set in the scale to move to the next wage rate. The employer disagreed. The Arbitrator said that, on a plain reading of the collective agreement, the interpretation favoured the employer, which the parties intended that the employees actually work hours to move through the wage scale.
