LAO Articling Students vote in favour of Union

Published: December 1, 2016

Legal Aid Ontario’s articling students held a vote earlier this year to determine if they wished to organize with the Society of Energy Professionals as their exclusive bargaining agent.

The vote was counted today at the Ontario Labour Board and the result was 29 in favour and 4 opposed.

In the coming days, LAO will reach out to the Society of Energy Professionals to work out next steps. And we will continue to work with our articling students, and the Society of Energy Professionals, to make LAO the best possible workplace.
