Board found that employees should be included in first unit for purposes of ballot

Canada Industrial Relations Board made decision in context of revising structure of bargaining units covering employees of French network regarding representation vote. Board found that employees were employees within meaning of Canada Labour Code and should be included in first unit for purposes of ballot. Broadcasting corporation brought application for judicial review. Application dismissed. Decision was made for sole purpose of getting things done quickly so that ballot could take place without delay. Application for judicial review was moot and declaration sought would have no practical use if granted.
