38 workers at Premium Plaza Lounge located in the Winnipeg Airport voted unanimously to join UFCW 832.
These new members work inside the premium lounge, making the traveller’s experience less stressful and more enjoyable by providing good service in a relaxing environment with multiple food choices.
“After constant recurring late-payment issues, sick leave and missed overtime pay, these workers decided to unionize,” said Jeff Traeger, President of UFCW Local 832. “Now, they will have a voice at the bargaining table and a way to address issues in the workplace with a collective agreement.”
The union will meet with the workers in the coming weeks to arrange their first proposal meeting, form a bargaining committee, and work towards their first collective agreement.
