    Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

    If you make it uneconomic to be employed, you won't be employed.

    You're not entitled to higher wages.
    Gain skills/ experience and move on.

    Amid negotiations for higher wages, Teamsters Local Union 987 said that 527 out of 534 at the location have been told they will be laid off effective Thursday.
    Typically bad reporting by the CBC I guess then.

    According to Taylor, Loblaw was offering a "straight money offer" that did not include any rules or regulations around working conditions. He said the company would not change anything the union had asked for that did not involve money.
    They're mostly asking for improved working conditions.

    I personally would not turn down a 32% raise unless shit was real bad.
    At least they get to spend Christmas with their families.

    Beware the passive aggressive Mean Girls. Vengie, Killramos, Penismightier, buster, jrscoolude, etc who bully others into their circle jerk opinion, serially negging you, while claiming they ignore you and don't obsess over you.

    PSA. High school is not a popularity contest little girls

    Another issue revolved around workers receiving better shifts according to seniority.
    "That was one of the things that members wanted back in the agreement," he added. "And as far as we can see, we don't see any monetary costs associated with putting those shift preference languages back into collective agreement."
    So union seniority BS shooting their own foot? You don't say.

    Nobody hates entry level workers more than unions. But it's the perfect crime. Make entry level work less attractive, so you need to pay more to get workers, then wages go up for everyone and it looks reasonable.

    Genius.

    How? Guaranteed Loblaws caves as the shelves go bare before the union does.
