Shane Todd obtained a dismissal of termination grievances filed by four employees who were discharged for significant discounting and ticketing fraud. The union had originally refused to refer the grievances to arbitration. The Canada Industrial Relations Board found that the union had failed to discharge its duty of fair representation. The Board ordered the grievances to proceed to arbitration and for the union to pay for the employee’s independent counsel. Shane Todd also represented United Airlines in the duty of fair representation complaint and in motions brought during the course of the arbitration.
