Michael‘s Hos­pi­tal and the Ontario Nurs­es‘ Asso­ci­a­tion (April 2010) applied the tra­di­tion­al canons of con­tract inter­pre­ta­tion to the col­lec­tive agree­ment and decid­ed that the ben­e­fits pro­vid­ed to licensed nurs­es vary depend­ing on the rea­sons for the ter­mi­na­tions. In these cir­cum­stances, The Saint-Michel Hos­pi­tal was not oblig­ed to grant retire­ment or sep­a­ra­tion ben­e­fits to the dis­missed nurs­es and the union‘s polit­i­cal com­plaint was reject­ed. The Ontario Nurs­es‘ Asso­ci­a­tion nego­ti­ates your wages, ben­e­fits and work­ing con­di­tions on your behalf. Access to your con­tract below: The arbi­tra­tor found that the ear­ly retire­ment and sep­a­ra­tion ben­e­fits pro­vid­ed for in Arti­cle 10.14 were only avail­able if the dis­missals were as a result of inte­gra­tions. Dis­missals for oth­er rea­sons, such as in this case, trig­gered the require­ments of Arti­cle 10.09, but not those of Arti­cle 10.14.
