OLRB upholds trusteeship of Universal Workers Union Local 183

Canada NewsWire
In a sweeping judgment submitted Jan. 26, 2007, the Ontario Labour Relations Board (OLRB) ruled Labourers' International Union of North America (LIUNA) established 'just cause' for placing Universal Workers Union Local 183 under trusteeship, replacing former business manager Tony Dionisio.

'It is surely inconsistent with the core values of LIUNA and Local 183 to expend union funds on surreptitious surveillance conducted for the purpose of preserving the positions of those in power,' wrote the OLRB's Norm Jesin. 'It is also inconsistent with those core values to approve the forgery of collective agreements.'

'I have found that LIUNA has established just cause for the imposition of trusteeship,' Mr. Jesin added.
