Justice Timothy Keene found the union ‘intentionally and deliberately disobeyed’ injunction
A Regina judge has ruled that Unifor must pay a $100,000 fine for “‘intentionally and deliberately” disobeying an interim court injunction which prevented prolonged and extended blockades at the Co-Op Refinery Complex.
The decision was handed down by Justice Timothy Keene on Wednesday during a contempt hearing at the Court of Queen’s Bench.
“There was also an attempt, during argument, to persuade this Court that somehow the order was hard to understand or could be interpreted in a fashion that excused the Union’s actions,” Keene wrote in the decision, which referenced Justice Janet McMurtry’s order.
