Unifor rallies across the country for cleaners | Unifor National




Unifor B.C. Area Director Gavin McGarrigle, B.C. Federation of Labour Jim Sinclair and activists with cleaners on the 10th floor of the Cadillac Fairview offices at 609 Granville Street in Vancouver.  A decision by Cadillac Fairview was made to replace the contract of these cleaners, some who have been cleaning their offices for decades to another company paying around $1.50 an hour less and no benefits.  The photos were taken on the 10th floor because rather than providing these workers with an explanation they chose to lock their doors and elevators denying them access.  After a couple of hours Gavin and Jim met with representatives from Cadillac Fairview.  Stay tuned.  Click these links for more.
