MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — The Ontario Labour Relations Board reportedly ruled that the Accor-owned Novotel Mississauga hotel in Ontario acted illegally by threatening employees against unionizing, reports the Toronto Star.
“Taken as a whole, the hotel’s illegal activity was of such a nature that the wishes of the employees cannot be ascertained in a representation vote, even a vote held in conditions favourable to the union,” the labour Board’s decision reads, according to The Star.
The dispute dates back to 2008/2009. The Unite Here union — which represents hospitality, airports, laundry, foodservice workers in Canada and U.S. — alleged the hotel intentionally misinformed employees about joining the union, cut back hours for those in favour and threatened to cut jobs.
