Ufcw 832 Collective Agreement
“Our workers tell us they feel punished for having a union and getting a collective agreement.” The union that represents the employees of Stella`s Café on Sherbrook Street is filing several complaints against the owners of the Winnipeg restaurant, saying that management is refusing to grant the wage increases provided for in a newly established collective agreement. The collective agreement, which applies to waiters, dishwashers, cooks, hosts, baristas and exhibitors (workers who prepare food to be brought to the table) of the restaurant, requires a salary increase after one year. “We have received a large number of complaints from Stella workers at the Sherbrook site about how the employer implemented the first agreement,” said Jeffrey Traeger, president of UFCW Local 832.

Traeger sagt, dass der Missstand, der die größte Sorge bereitet, eine Lohnerhöhung betrifft. « Wir fühlen uns wohl, dass sich die Menschen wirklich gut fühlen, was sie sehen, und wir hören . of employees, that they see the positive change. The other complaints claim that management does not provide for working time based on seniority and requires workers to be available for four positions per week – if the contract says there should be two positions. To foster thoughtful and respectful conversations, first and last names will appear at each submission in CBC/Radio-Canada`s online communities (except in children`s and youth communities). Pseudonyms are no longer allowed. Stella`s now has, among other things, a cultural and engagement committee with collaborators as members, a human resources department and a confidential hotline and complaint procedure, he said. Employees at two of Winnipeg`s seven Stella sites, including the one in Sherbrooke, voted to unionize late last year, following the “Not My Stella” campaign.
During the social media campaign, workers spoke at length about complaints about management and allegations of sexual harassment, moral harassment and abuse in the chain. Sohlberg said the company would not comment on the details of the contract or complaints and said it decided to go through the formal complaint procedure. As a result, no one received a salary increase, Traeger says. Traeger also says that management forces waiters to abandon their tables when they take their paid break. In a written statement, Stella`s owner fired on the UFCW`s accusations. The president of United Food and Commercial Workers Local 832 says the union had to file five complaints against Stella and filed a complaint for unfair labor practices less than a month after the formal contract was concluded. The union says the increase should come after a year of employment, but Stella says it means a year after the contract is signed. The UFCW`s five complaints are referred to arbitration.
