OLRB Issues Ruling Against Unifor

The Ontario Labour Relations Board has ruled that actions taken by Unifor against General Motors were unlawful. The auto giant contacted the OLRB in hopes of putting a stop to strikes it called "illegal." The ruling orders the union and it's members, including President Jerry Dias, to "cease and desist from engaging in, authorizing, or counselling unlawful strikes." Unifor has been fighting against the pending closure of GM's Oshawa plant scheduled for the end of this year which will affect 2,600 unionized workers.
