UNION SCORES BIG IN SASKATCHEWAN FAST-FOOD SECTOR

Regina — Union organizers have succeeded in winning a first contract at a Regina KFC outlet, bringing workers at all six of the fast-food chain’s stores in the city into the Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees Union. Union spokesperson Brian Christoph, explaining how contracts were achieved in an industry considered almost impossible to unionize, credited educating and listening to young workers, getting input from their parents and Saskatchewan’s favourable labour laws. Christoph added unions across the country hope to use the Regina KFC drive as a template.
