Vancouver, B.C. - Ongoing labour negotiations between Aramark, food service provider for General Motors Place, and Unite Here! Local 40, food service employees union, voted in favour of work action. It is at the discretion of the Union to pursue action.
Canucks Sports & Entertainment’s first priority is with our guests and their experience at General Motors Place.
The B.C. Labour Relations Board has issued an order restricting picketing, allowing hockey games, events and concerts at General Motors Place to continue as planned, without interruption, should a strike occur. Some gates may have pickets; however, they will not interfere with our guests’ ability to access the building. In this case, food service would also continue with limited offerings rather than traditional and more comprehensive fare.
I hate press releases like this...
- "...voted in favour of work action.' Uh...no, they voted to NOT work. Hmmm...
- "Canucks Sports & Entertainment’s first priority is with our guests and their experience..." Sounds to me like you should be handing out free beers and soda's to everyone.
- "...food service would also continue with limited offerings rather than traditional and more comprehensive fare." Does that mean, since the fan is spending a couple hundred bucks to be there and they can't really get what they want, can they call Domino's for delivery during the game?
This could turn into such a win for the team and GM Place, if handled correctly. But, hey...what do you expect from a coporate guy? So, answer this poll about the strike:
