  Say cheese

The CAW in Winnipeg has just launched a grievance and a privacy complaint in reference to employer video surveillance, asking for damages based on "loss of dignity and invasion of privacy". Meanwhile, next door in Ontario, in a provincially regulated arbitration hearing, David Fraser has pointed out an arbitration hearing rejecting a grievance about video surveillance, since there is NO statutory right of privacy in provincial labour relations in Ontario.

I predict two things. First is that Anne Cavoukian, the outspoken Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario will not be pleased and will say so. Second and more nebulous is that this decision, if publicized, may act as a catalyst to properl private sector privacy legislation in Ontario. The two are not unrelated.
