An employee of the Canadian Labour Congress (CLC) who only had a learner’s permit wasn’t excluded from the car allowance under her collective agreement, despite CLC’s claim she wasn’t eligible.

Bilan Arte was hired by CLC on Nov. 20, 2017 to be the national representative for women’s and human rights, based in Ottawa.

Arte completed a form on automobile information, providing details on her personal vehicle and driver’s licence number. She also provided her partner’s name and driver’s licence number as another driver in the same household.
