Tim Gleason, a lawyer for Mr. Kinnear, said the ruling was a breakthough for other Canadian locals seeking to leave U.S.-based international unions, many of which have similarly restrictive constitutions: “It’s the first time that a union has ever been successful in this kind of a motion. And it opens the door to very compelling arguments that these terms which are quite common in U.S. international unions’ constitutions are unconscionable and hopefully unenforceable.”
