CSN Adopts Decisia for its Internal Bank of Precedents

Lexum is proud to announce that the legal department of the Confédération des syndicats nationaux (CSN) selected Decisia to manage its internal bank of judicial and quasi-judicial decisions. CSN lawyers have been accumulating court decisions and arbitration awards in labour law for many years, in order to provide a knowledge base to be used as precedents in current cases. The services to be provided by Lexum to the CSN will allow the legal department staff to perform combined advanced legal research in both this corpus and CanLII.

CSN is a Canadian federation of unions founded in 1921 and headquartered in Montreal. In 2012, the confederation had approximately 300,000 members in approximately 2,000 unions representing some 4,400 workplaces. It is thus the second largest trade union federation in Quebec by volume of members.
