Ontario grocery store beer sales should lead to better jobs, Unifor says

The added responsibility of selling of beer in grocery stores should lead to more, better-paying full-time jobs claims Unifor, Canada’s largest private-sector union.

“As beer sales roll out in supermarkets across Ontario, Unifor demands stores offer opportunities to improve jobs and working conditions in the retail sector,” a statement issued by the union reads, in part.

“Workers in retail, including grocery stores, face significant challenges around minimum hours of work, notice of shifts and schedule changes, and they experience low wages,” Unifor national president Jerry Dias said in the statement. “With this new power to sell beer, employers have a responsibility to address precarious working conditions and create good jobs for the project to flourish.”
