In her diverse labour law practice, Meg represents mostly trade union clients and a handful of progressive employer-side clients. Meg is an exceptional listener with strong written advocacy skills. 

Dedicated to responsive service and representation, Meg has achieved numerous positive results for her clients and their members, including the following highlights:

  • An arbitrator overturned the termination of an RPN whose conduct in handling a 911 event was found to not warrant her discharge;
  • The Ontario Labour Relations Board overturned a work assignment of asbestos abatement, removal and disposal of materials that was allocated to the incorrect union;
  • An arbitrator awarded a “per visit” premium to be paid to Personal Support Workers (PSWs) who provide home care for each client visit, even in circumstances where the PSW visits more than one client at a particular residential address.

Meg’s practice spans various areas of labour and workplace law.  She represents clients from a broad range of sectors including health care, manufacturing, construction, media, and service industries, appearing regularly at the Ontario Labour Relations Board and before arbitration boards.  She has gained experience working under the Pay Equity Act, the Public Sector Labour Relations Transition Act, and other unique niches in labour and employment law.

Meg enjoys travelling and spending time in the beautiful Georgian Bay area with her family and friends.  She also enjoys practicing her three second languages: Italian, French, and Spanish.
