TB Rejects the AJC's Policy Grievance on Articling Students´ Fees, But We Will Pursue the Matter

Suffice to say, we will be pursuing the matter to adjudication.

There is news on the articling students' fees file. Treasury Board recently rejected our grievance on the basis that articling students need not be members of a provincial bar, despite what the actual legislation governing articling students actually requires.  

Suffice to say, we will be pursuing the matter to adjudication.  Here is a link to Treasury Board´s deplorable decision.

In June 2013, the AJC filed a policy grievance on the basis that «lawyers» as defined in our collective agreement includes «articling students».  

Currently, all lawyers and all articling students (except in the Montreal, National Capital and Ontario regions) get reimbursed for membership or other fees to a professional organization when the payment of such fees is necessary to maintain a professional qualification required by the Employer.  

It is common knowledge that in order to be an articling student, one must be registered with a provincial or territorial bar.  

We will keep you informed on further developments on this file as they unfold.
