Appeal of 30-day suspension to Locomotive Engineer B. Desjarlais

The arbitrator accordingly substitutes a 3-day suspension for the original 30-day suspension. This suspension applies solely to Mr. Desjarlais receiving a call for work and booking off sick at that time. No discipline was warranted for the two occasions when Mr. Desjarlais booked unfit in accordance with the collective agreement.

Appeal of two dismissals of D. Lang

The arbitrator has concluded that the dismissal for the September 3, 2016 derailment incident was excessive and shall be replaced by a 7-day suspension. The arbitrator orders CP to reinstate Mr. Lang in his employment, with compensation and without loss of seniority, except for the period of the 7-day suspension and less any amounts earned in mitigation.

Appeal of J. Zahariuk of Winnipeg, MB.

The discharge penalty applied three times in a row are now all set aside and the grievor is to be reinstated as directed above. In the last two cases particularly, the magnitude of the penalty grossly outweighs the relative seriousness of the offences alleged.
