Sarah believes in the labour movement, and is proud to represent trade unions at labour boards, arbitrations and in court.

As a union-side labour lawyer in Hamilton, Ontario, Sarah has represented unions in a wide variety of matters, but her focus is on providing legal support before, during and after a union organizing drive.

Some of Sarah’s notable work on behalf of unions and their members include:

  • Successfully defending a union’s key inside organizer against allegations that his legitimate organizing efforts constituted illegal harassment or in Worldpac Canada Inc, 2018 CanLII 75070 (ON LRB)
  • Defeating a decertification application brought after a unionized hotel was purchased by a new owner who was highly antagonistic towards the union’s representative in Mallory v United Food and Commercial Workers Canada, 2018 CanLII 13358 (ON LRB)
  • 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. Labour lawyers represent unions or unionized employers in disputes about workplace policies, rules, employee discipline and dismissal under a Collective Agreement.
