PM #40065782 Labour Reporter Canadian September 2, 2019 Hotel workers join UFCW Wage hikes wanted for about 30 employees at Le Germain Hotel in Toronto Chicken processing plant employees sent home after work contracted out ON MULTIPLE occasions, workers at a poultry plant were told to leave work while outside contractors were brought in, lead- ing to a grievance. Employees of Rossdown Natu- ral Foods in Abbotsford, B.C. worked in various departments (live end, evisceration, cut and pack and shipping) while chickens were processed. Certain departments were sometimes temporarily laid off depending on the workflow com- ing through other departments. To help better manage the Queen's University professor grieves after office relocated to another building AFTER a personnel dispute surfaced among members of the office staff at Queen's Univer- sity in Kingston, Ont., one of the professors was moved out of her current office into a new one in a different building. Adele Mercier worked as a philosophy depart- ment professor since 1992. Her former office was located on the third floor of Watson Hall, which was where all other department professors were housed. But on Oct. 29, 2013, Mercier was advised via letter from Susan Mumm, dean of the Faculty of Arts and Science, that "both office staff members in the department have indicated that they feel unsafe in your presence and do not wish to have direct communications with you." The workers didn't fear a physical threat but instead they reported feeling "psychologically unsafe," according to a report by Heather Shields, non-faculty labour relations.
