Teamsters Local 31 in contempt of court for impeding traffic during Rocky Mountaineer labour dispute

Jurisdiction: - British Columbia - Canada/Federal
Sector: - Transportation

In Great Canadian Railtour Company Ltd. v. Teamsters Local Union No. 31 2011 BCSC 1720, the court found that the Teamsters Local Union 31, through its officers, had deliberately disobeyed a previous court order (as it relates to not impeding traffic) and thus the union was in contempt of court.

This was the second time the union had been found to be in contempt of a court order during the Rocky Mountaineer labour dispute. The first time is detailed in this decision: Great Canadian Railtour Company Ltd. v. Teamsters Local Union No. 31, 2011 BCSC 1149.
