Mathews Dinsdale would like to extend its congratulations to Hilary Grice and Alex Ognibene of the University of Toronto, winners of the 2015 Mathews Dinsdale National Labour Arbitration Competition!
Mathews Dinsdale would also like to recognize Anthony Salandra and Nathan Vandermey of Western University, the other finalists in this year’s Competition.
The Competition, held at the end of January, required law students from across Canada to research and argue both sides of a case that centred on whether an employer was entitled to implement random drug and alcohol testing.
The students made their arguments in front of panels of judges, adjudicators, and practitioners in the labour and employment law field. On Sunday, the finalists made their arguments before The Honourable Mr. Justice Thomas Cromwell of the Supreme Court of Canada; Mr. Bernard Fishbein, Chair of the Ontario Labour Relations Board; and Ms. Jane Devlin, Arbitrator.
Mathews Dinsdale would like to congratulate all of the competitors and thank all of the judges, adjudicators, practitioners, and coaches who volunteered their time to make this year’s Competition possible.
