An arbitrator has found an Ontario worker was not guilty of threatening workplace violence but did not reduce the worker’s suspension because he felt no remorse for his intimidating behaviour.

The worker was a welder mechanic employed for 20 years at a facility in Sarnia, Ont., operated by Procor, a company that repaired and recertified tank cars.
