PM #40065782 AIR CANADA Rouge discrimi- nated against flight attendants when it didn't offer requalification training when they returned from maternity leave, an arbitrator has ruled. The Montreal-based subsid- iary of Air Canada lacked train- ing facilities so it used those of its parent company to provide legally required flight attendant training. The training schedule was deter- mined by operational needs and pilot availability. Rouge's collective agreement with its flight attendants allowed maternity and parental leave in Agreement signed 400 workers at Maple Leaf Poultry plant in Edmonton ratify contract after second attempt EDUCATION Government of Canada Multiprovince (180 university professors, lecturers) and the Canadian Military Colleges Faculty Association (CMCFA) Renewal agreement: Effec- tive July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2022.

On March 11, the World Health Organization de- clared a pandemic as COVID-19 spread across the globe. The disease's symptoms are often more seri- ous in older people, resulting in a crisis in Ontario's LTC homes. Many LTC home residents have died and staff have experienced high rates of infection due outbreaks in the homes. The Ontario Nurses Association (ONA) filed a grievance on behalf of registered nurses work- ing in LTC homes across the province, claiming the homes didn't do enough at the start of the pandemic to give nurses personal protective equipment (PPE), provide proper communication, test nurses and residents, clean the homes, maintain staffing levels during the crisis, and enforce self-isolation rules for individuals with symptoms.
