Compass Group workers in Guelph join the Union
September 17, 2018
On September 5, employees at Compass Canada Support Services at Conestoga College in Guelph, became the newest members of UFCW Local 175.
Issues that brought the Compass Group workers to join the Union included:
- working conditions,
- seniority, and;
- job security.
Local 175 already represents Compass employees at Conestoga College in Kitchener and other locations. That experience is partly why the workers reached out to the Union.
“The workers are very interested in the security that exists in the agreement for workers at the Kitchener Conestoga campus,” said Organizer Russell Evans. “They understand the importance of having an agreement, and they’re aware of the benefits it can provide. I know they are eagerly awaiting their proposal meeting.”
