In October 2021, Sinai Health System gave an ultimatum to their 15,000 employees to get vaccinated or get fired. Several employees represented by the National Organized Workers Union were concerned about this coercive policy and they complained to their union. The union filed a grievance with the Labour Relations Board, but the grievance could not be heard before the policy came into effect. The concerned employees therefore asked the court for an injunction to stay the mandatory vaccination policy pending the grievance. This request for an injunction was refused.
Update: TDF lawyer Mark Joseph is partnering with Perrys LLP to appeal this decision to the Ontario Court of Appeal. The appeal has been perfected and is expected to be heard later this year.
