Workers at Comfort Inn Guelph voted to join UFCW Canada Local 1006A.
The vote took place on July 6, 2018. The new unit is composed of 14 workers who work in Housekeeping, Front Desk, Porter, Maintenance and Breakfast.
"The power of unions rests in the unity and persistence of workers coming together, showing determination to make their workplaces and communities better,” said President Wayne Hanley. “Unions are the pathway to workers winning rights and improving their lives at work and beyond. Our newest members at Comfort Inn Guelph recognized the strength they will gain as union members – I’m proud to congratulate them on achieving union representation and proud to welcome them to the UFCW Canada Local 1006A family."
UFCW Canada Local 1006A is home to many hotel workers from across the province.
"Our newest members showed tremendous strength and commitment to each other to ensure they obtain access to job security, representation and improvements to their health and safety,” said Lesley Prince, Coordinator of the Organizing Department.
