Ravenlaw is delighted to announce that the Supreme Court of Canada has ruled that pensioners at Manitoba Telecom Services (MTS) are entitled to compensation for the $43 million of surplus pension contributions made to MTS prior to its privatization. This ruling, worth well over $100 million with interest, ends a long legal battle for these workers and their unions.
Congratulations to Brian Meronek, Kris Saxberg and Tomas Masi of D’Arcy & Deacon. James Cameron and Andrew Astritis appeared as co-counsel in the appeal.
