The court found that they were not included, rejecting the employer’s argument that examples provided in the contract showed how MAPs were to be calculated. The court thought that it should proceed with care before concluding that a party had the right to terminate a long term agreement where the contract was not clear as to the circumstances in which it could be terminated. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
