Aramark/Unite Here! Local 40 Labour Negotiation Status Update
/ Vancouver Canucks
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.
Canucks Sports & Entertainment hopes negotiations between Aramark and its employees can be resolved expeditiously and successfully with minimal inconvenience to guests of General Motors Place.
Further information and updates on the status of negotiations will be provided as it becomes available.
