Jim Robbins and Michael McDonough successfully represented LIUNA 183 and the grievor, Alexis Williams, in alleging that Mr. Williams had been unjustly terminated from his position with Crosslinx Transit Solutions.

After hearing evidence from an expert witness about implicit bias, the OLRB found that the employer did not have cause to fire Mr. Williams, and further, that its decision to terminate Mr. Williams' employment was tainted by discrimination based on race and colour.
