Union des artistes v. Compagnie Marie Chouinard, 2019 QCCA 1713

The Quebec Court of Appeal refuses leave to appeal from the Union des artistes confirming a decision of the TAT to the effect that it is not competent under the Quebec Status of the artist Act to hear a complaint of hinder to union activities by a producer, bad faith negotiation and a request for the issuance of a safeguard order. The jurisdiction of the TAT is much more limited under the Quebec Status of the Artist Act than under the Labour Code, which does not apply to the Film industry in Quebec. According to the Court of Appeal, it is up to the Quebec legislature to decide whether or not to amend the Act in order to add these recourses for the artists and their union.
