Technical Notes

Case conclusion reports analyze cases by "resolution type."  Some resolution types are self-explanatory. The following comments will explain those that are not:



Refused Numbers: means the union did not meet the initial 40 per cent requirement.

Refused Unit: means the Board found the bargaining unit inappropriate.

Refused - Multiple: means the application was dismissed in circumstances where the union applied more than once, intending only to get one certificate (for example, when it was uncertain which party was the true employer).

Refused - Other: means the Board rejected the application for other reasons. For example, time bars, lack of trade union status, etc.


Refused - Numbers: means the applicant did not have the necessary initial 40 per cent support.

Refused - Other: means the Board rejected the application for other reasons.

All Other Categories:

Withdrawn: means the application was withdrawn. Parties may do this voluntarily, or as part of a settlement arrived at between themselves.

Informal: means the matter was resolved by the parties accepting a section 11 informal Board member recommendation.

Settled: means the matter was settled because of officer or other Board intervention.

Dismissed: means the Board dismissed a complaint, or ruled for the respondent in an application or reference.
