Faroex approaches union on E.I. work share program

Faroex has approached the local with regards to employment insurance’s work share program due to an anticipated decline in business over the coming months. The work share is a program sponsored by employment insurance that allows employees to be eligible for E.I. when working a reduced workweek. It allows all employees to work fewer day(s) per week and collect E.I. for the day(s) not worked.
