In his decade as In-House Legal Counsel, Vaino provided thoughtful, strategic, and results-driven counsel to OSSTF/FEESO on a broad range of matters, including contract negotiations, grievance arbitrations, labour bord proceedings, and health and safety, human rights, employment insurance, pension, and professional discipline matters.
