Teck Coal

In regards to the proportionality test, the arbitrator departed from reality in wrongfully concluding: that simply because Teck Coal was achieving safety improvements as a result of other aspects of its robust health and safety program, somehow random testing ceases to be a proportional response.  This is irrational, unworkable and very common in BC industrial jurisprudence because of the lack of industrial work in BC for a period of close to 20 years.

All of which is beyond the reasonable purview and responsibility of the employer, unions and I would even say, leads to a never-ending loop for employment administrative tribunals.
