An assistant to Larry Hubich, the president of the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour, claims her union did not represent her fairly in a complaint against her boss.

Cara Banks, executive assistant to Hubich, has been off the job on a medical leave, since the end of March.

She accuses her boss of bullying and harassing her, allegations Hubich has denied.

Banks' complaint, of poor representation by CUPE local 4828, is currently being heard by the Labour Relations Board.
