Molson Coors Canada

Grievance under new section 41.1 of the Act Respecting Labour Standards (Loi sur les normes du travail). This article states that: "No employer may remunerate an employee at a lower rate of wage than that granted to his other employees performing the same tasks in the same establishment solely because of the employee’s employment status, and in particular because the employee usually works fewer hours each week." Therefore, the Union, the Teamsters, is calling for an increase in the wage rates for all casual employees to the wage rates for permanent employees. This is a precedent-setting case. Since it is a new article, we are the first to act in a litigation under this article. This is a major financial issue for our client (current and future) but also for many other employers in Québec who are in the same situation. Matter value More than $500,000. A Fasken team led by Rhéaume Perreault, including Cynthia Bachaalan and Marc-André Boucher advised Molson Coors in connection with this matter.
