Workers at Wine Rack stores in Toronto are on strike: low-wage wages and refusal to implement a fair hour scheduling system that respects seniority.
CUPE 4207 President Nathan Cecckin showing support and solidarity on our behalf! #WineRackStrike – SEIU Local 2 Wine Rack Canada.
As the strike goes on, more and more of Wine Rack’s horrible employment practices are coming to light. SEIU Local 2 has submitted a complaint against Arterra Wines, owner of Wine Rack stores, to the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario for discrimination against a worker on the basis of disability
. The worker, Clarke Allison, says that his store manager explicitly cited his physical disability as the reason for his negative performance review, which blocked Allison from receiving an annual wage increase.
Very disheartening to see a teacher-owned company engage in such egregious assaults against workers’ rights.
When will Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF), OECTA – Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association, AEFO, Ontario Teachers’ Federation – OTF and Elementary Educators take action!?
