An arbitrator has ordered the reinstatement of a Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) worker who was fired for harassing and verbally abusing other employees.


The 43-year-old worker joined CPR in 1996 and had a clean disciplinary record, but suffered from anxiety for which he sought medical care from his family doctor and a psychologist.
