Appearances: S. Eadie, for the Grievor; R. Roy, for the Employer
Decision rendered: October 17, 2001
Termination (non-disciplinary) – Non-renewal of determinate appointment (term) – Whether disguised discipline – Jurisdiction – the grievor was a veterinarian employed for a one-year term at a meat processing plant – her term received three short extensions – the employer informed the grievor that her term would not be extended any further – in the meantime, the grievor had complained against the employer's staffing process and was offered seven indeterminate appointments from which to choose, which she all refused – the employer objected to the adjudicator's jurisdiction to hear the grievance – the grievor argued that the non-renewal of her term constituted disguised discipline – the employer responded that it did not act in bad faith in its dealings with the grievor – the adjudicator found that the non-renewal of the grievor's term did not constitute a termination or a disciplinary action for the purpose of section 92 of the Public Service Staff Relations Act.
