Decision 71732 Full Text of Decision 71732

Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
labour dispute directly interested employment terminates
Summary:

Section 36 of the Act states that a person who experiences a work stoppage as result of a labour dispute is not entitled to receive benefits unless he or she meets certain criteria. Section 36(4) of the Act stipulate that, this section does not apply if a claimant proves that the claimant is not participating in, financing or directly interested in the labour dispute that caused the stoppage of work. To be exempt from the application of the Act, claimants must prove that they are not participating in, financing or «indirectly interested» in the labour dispute. The expression «indirectly interested» means that claimants must show that, if they return to work following the dispute, they cannot access any earnings or benefits obtained as a result of the dispute. The fourth criterion is speculative, but clearly sets out that the claimant, who may benefit from a new collective agreement in the future, cannot be exempt from the application of section 36 of the Act. The appeal is dismissed.

Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
labour dispute directly interested employment terminates
Summary:

In order to determine whether 31(2) applies, the CEIC submitted that the Board would have to find that claimant's severance from employment was full, final and absolute. Even if that is but another way of describing how 31(2) can apply, I prefer the exposition in HURREN. [p._8] Claimant locked out 1-1 and then terminated 6-2 due to actions on picket line. Grievance filed and rejected. Union intends to negotiate dismissal prior to resuming activities. HURREN distinguished. Continues to be directly interested.

Decision A-0942.85 Full Text of Decision A-0942.85

Issue: Sub-Issue 1: Sub-Issue 2: Sub-Issue 3:
labour dispute directly interested employment terminates
Summary:

A disentitlement which has come into being under 31(1) continues until (a) or (b) applies. This does not exclude the possibility of it becoming inapplicable by reason of claimant subsequently proving 31(2). This is not contrary to the policy of the Act. Truly retired during strike. It was argued that he might have an eventual interest in the settlement should he decide to return. Assuming that such interest was different from that of the public at large, it would not be "direct" within 31(2).
