Manitoba Court of Appeal upholds order for MB to pay UMFA $19.4M


Manitoba Court of Appeal has upheld Justice Joan McKelvey’s decision to order the Province of Manitoba to pay the University of Manitoba Faculty Association (UMFA) members $19.4M in damages for interfering in labour negotiations. The province appealed the decision, alleging that the trial judge had made errors in law and fact. “I am not convinced that the trial judge erred in law or made a palpable and overriding factual error,” wrote Justice Diana Cameron in her decision. MB is reportedly reviewing this decision and has 60 days to appeal the decision in the Supreme Court of Canada.
