PM #40065782 Labour Reporter Canadian June 3, 2019 Moose Jaw, Sask., hotel cleaner fired after she didn't remove pigeon's nest A HOTEL in Moose Jaw, Sask., terminated one of its cleaners af- ter another cleaner found a pigeon nest with eggs and hatchlings on one of its balconies. The Temple Gardens Hotel and Spa had experienced an ongoing problem with pigeons nesting in its balconies and had spent much money and effort on keeping them away, often to no avail. Staff were told to ensure that all pigeon-related messes were to be immediately cleaned and a re-training effort was given to employees in April 2018. Edmonton Safeway baker terminated after fall causing injury not believed AFTER a series of incidents that included a fall in the parking lot, an incorrectly cooked batch of ba- nana bread and various late check-ins, a baker at an Edmonton Safeway store was fired. Garry Neufeld had worked for Safeway for 16 years and for three years at the Westmount loca- tion in Edmonton. During a stretch of time be- tween October 2014 and January 2016, Neufeld was late several times and incurred four discipline notices, after which he was transferred to the Jas- per Gates location on Jan. 10. On Jan. 7, he was asked to make 60 loaves of ba- nana bread for a special store promotion. Neufeld baked the bread but because he used frozen eggs instead of thawed ones, the batch had to be de- stroyed. On Jan. 9, Neufeld was scheduled to begin his shift at 5:30 a.m., but he didn't show up on time. Later that morning, baker Reynaldo Yu met Neufeld in the changeroom. Neufeld told Yu that PUBLIC LIBRARIES Edson Library Board Edson, Alta.
