    Steelworkers Greet Supreme Court of Canada Ruling: Courts Can't Rule on Successor Rights in Bankruptcies - USW Canada news room
    'The Supreme Court has clearly confirmed that labour relations boards should determine questions on successor rights and not the courts,' adds Neumann.

    Former IWA Local 1-700 president Ron Diotte, today a business agent with USW Local 1-700, says the union will be seeking the reinstatement of collective bargaining rights and union members, with compensation for lost wages and other costs.

    'This has been a long battle for justice and we congratulate our membership for winning a battle which can benefit union members in other parts of Canada,' says Diotte.
