Seniority Rights Lost on Privatization Worth $1.2 million

In a landmark decision, the Ontario Divisional Court has upheld the
Grievance Settlement Board's award of $1.2 million in damages to 50
provincial government employees who were improperly stripped of their
seniority rights when three young-offender facilities were privatized
by the former Conservative provincial government. The Court agreed
with the Board's decision that each of the affected employees should
be paid two weeks' pay for each year of service.
