Labour council to hold information picket at Tim Hortons

Tim Hortons' response to minimum wage hikes sparks series of protests Protests Set For Friday At Tim's Locations.

As stories surface about Tim Hortons workers losing paid breaks, facing tip rollbacks and having to pay for uniforms, the head of the Windsor and District Labour Council is pushing to give them a voice. The National Day of Action was organized by the OFL which represents 54 unions across Ontario.

Ever since Tim Hortons was acquired by RBI three years back, the money in the fund has been used in an improper and unofficial manner, rendering to the alleged claim filed in the Superior Court of Ontario. But instead you are hearing workers saying, 'I can't tell you things. "That just proves the need for unions".

Ontario's minimum wage rose on January 1 to $14 an hour from $11.60. But Hogan points out that businesses all knew the wage increase was coming and slashing some of the employees perks is the wrong way to handle it.

"Some of the franchise owners are not playing to the spirit of the law", Hogan said.

The Tim Hortons International refused any part in the statement, making it clear that every franchise was responsible for its own activity and does not speak for the brand's principles. If you are a new hire before you've even started working you are already down $100 for the uniform.

Whether or not the employees have been turned against Wynne is still a matter in doubts but the workers are evidently unhappy on these unjust cut backs.

This is looking like a very strong pool of players for Curry and James to pick their teams from. Initially, Curry suggested he might "go pick all guards and pick the shortest team possible".

"There needs to be a recognition that no one who works should live in poverty", she said. "To make sure they know that the labour movement and the community is here to support them and to make sure they are treated with respect and fairly". If the employees take issue with those changes, they should call Wynne, the letter says.

"That an employer would try to penalize them for getting a slight increase in their wages is ridiculous", she said, explaining labour, under the banner Fight for $15 and Fairness, worked hard to pressure the province to boost the minimum wage.

"I think it's an outrage", said Nick Day, a volunteer with Fight for 15.

A gathering of more than 20 people outside a Broadview and Danforth avenues Tim Hortons was one of 50 such protests happening across Canada Friday, Jan. 19.

Protesters angered by some Ontario Tim Hortons franchisees who slashed workers' benefits and breaks after the minimum went up to $14 an hour on January 1st, are holding information pickets across the country Friday.
