  • Name Tag Fight : CIU Wins At OHS Tribunal, CBSA Appeal Rejected | Customs and Immigration Union
    Posted in Name tags By National Office In December 2012 many Border Services Officers BSO across Canada exercised their right to refuse dangerous work These BSOs alleged that CBSA s new ill conceived name tag policy forcing them to wear ID tags showing their names placed them at a higher risk of being harassed threatened or injured by persons who may be angered as a result of enforcement actions taken against them A Health Safety Officer HSO from Labour Programs Employment and Social Development Canada investigated the work refusals and while finding no danger issued a direction ordering CBSA to take preventative measures to address assessed hazards associated with the implementation of the new name tag policy into various workplaces nationwide CBSA in its typically arrogant ways decided to ignore the HSO direction and appealed it to the Occupational Safety and Health Tribunal The Tribunal hearings occurred the week of December 12 2013 After nearly 8 months of waiting the Tribunal issued an excellent decision favouring BSO safety and reminding CBSA that it has to do a better job protecting its employees The decision quashes CBSA s appeal and confirms the direction issued by a HSO CIU applauds its members
