Grievance resolved against Hammell

In January, we exclusively reported a unionized constituency assistant had filed two grievances against employer provincial New Democrat legislator Sue Hammell. So what happened to those complaints, which included disputes over short-term sick leave and overtime pay? Well, in an email to Public Eye, British Columbia Government and Service Employees' Union communications director Mary Rowles confirmed the complaints were resolved without arbitration over the spring, with the assistant received a payment of $2,800 to settle the matter.
