Food bank negotiating collective agreement with Canadian Union of Public Employees
Managers at Winnipeg’s largest food bank are reeling after a vote by staff members to unionize and still trying to find out the concerns of employees, they say.
“We were pretty blindsided. Actually, not pretty — we were blindsided,” said Winnipeg Harvest managing director Kate Brenner.
“It was quite a shock. To say we were surprised and speechless and a little sad would be an understatement.”
