LIUNA’s Challenge at the OLRB Against the BUC and OHL Failed
Concord, ON – Once again the Building Union of Canada has been recognized in the Heavy Civil Sector of construction in Ontario.
On November 10, 2016 in case #1348-14-R the Ontario Labour Relations Board dismissed the LIUNA Local 183 application and ruled in favour of the BUC and OHL Construction Canada Inc. for several reasons involving the Kipling Bridge Project (Kipling Ave/401 overpass.)
The Building Union of Canada is looking forward to continuing its relationship with OHL and several other construction companies working in the Heavy Civil Sector of construction.
