Regional Municipality of Waterloo Police Services Board v. Donovan, 2023 HRTO 276
Duty of Fair Representation
Police Arbitration Commission
In 2022, the Court of Appeal for Ontario ruled that Donovan must exhaust all remedies under the collection agreement with the Waterloo Regional Police Association. The DFR is Kelly's last attempt to get any help at all from the police association.
The proceeding was scheduled for arbitration starting on February 7, 2024.
