PM #40065782 Labour Reporter Canadian February 25, 2019 Saskatchewan worker demands airplane flight-delay payment AFTER HE experienced flight delays heading into work at a Mc- Clean Lake, Sask., mill, a worker was refused a $300 benefit for ar- riving late to work. Workers at the remote site were flown into Points North Landing Airport, in northern Saskatchewan, then driven about 41 kilometres to the site. Typical- ly, employees worked seven-day, 11-hour shifts. On Sept. 2, 2016, Barry McEwen, pipefitter for Orano Grievance filed after Starbucks employees excluded from hotel bargaining unit AFTER A Starbucks coffee outlet opened in the lobby of the Fairmont Palliser Hotel in Calgary in 2014, the union asked the employer to place all new employees into the bargaining unit. However, the employer disagreed and said the Starbucks workers were out of scope. Article 2 of the collective agreement called for "employees who are assigned to positions similar in kind or class to those listed in schedule A which might be created during the term of this agree- ment" to be included in the bargaining unit for Unifor, Local 4050. The Starbucks workers should be classified into the hotel servers group, said Unifor, because they did substantially similar work. The employer argued that although the work- ers, who were known as baristas, were paid by the hotel, they were restricted to work on the Star- bucks premises, which also was accessible to the public.
