Legal Database

This database contains legal decisions involving IATSE Canadian locals from across Canada. We believe that the database represents a comprehensive listing of all decisions involving IATSE Canadian locals over the last ten years as well as the more significant, landmark decisions going back to the 1980s.

Following each legal summary, you will find a link to the full decision in its original language on the CanLII database. Those summaries without a link will list a reference number. If you require any of those full decisions, please email and quote the reference number to be emailed a pdf copy.

Please let us know if you are aware of any important decisions that we have not included. We are planning to keep the database as up-to-date as possible. We will therefore continue to ask for the assistance of the Canadian locals in providing us with any new decisions whenever such decisions are issued.

The decisions have been carefully summarized and organized into categories.
