Judgment No. 1883


The motion is dismissed.



"The complainant contests [the non-renewal of his contract] by a motion for an interlocutory order, [he] seeks preliminary injunctive relief to force the organization to place him on unpaid leave of absence and to offer him contract work as available. [T]o allow the motion would of necessity decide the principal issue in the complaint which is before the Tribunal on the merits. The requested injunction would have the effect of altering the status quo. The reply raises serious issues which should only be determined on the merits." The Tribunal adds that "the allegation of irreparable harm is unconvincing" [and that] "the balance of hardships favours the organization."
