Sarah believes in the labour movement, and is proud to have a strong history of representing trade unions at labour boards, arbitrations and in court. While Sarah has represented unions in a wide variety of matters, her focus is on providing legal support before, during and after a union organizing drive.
Some of Sarah’s notable advocacy for Unions includes:
- Assisting in the organization of the country’s first unionized Amazon drivers.
- Successfully defending against a judicial review application to the Federal Court of Appeal by an employer who asserted that the Canada Industrial Relations Board’s certification of a group of in-flight paramedics was unconstitutional in Northern Air Solutions Inc (View Case).
- Obtaining a successor employer declaration in Pavao Meats Wholesale & Retail Ltd (View Case) following the sale in bankruptcy of a previously unionized meat processing facility and deli to a non-union employer.
