The union, which represents 315,000 workers, said at the time it had no further details to add about the matter.

Dias was notified of an independent investigation on Jan. 29, Unifor says, and went on medical leave on Feb. 6.

Citing health issues, Dias subsequently notified Unifor’s executive board on March 11 that he would retire immediately.
