Fight For 15 – Give me a break!

Give me a break!

When Ontario’s government increased minimum wage to $14/hr, Tim Hortons immediately eliminated workers’ paid breaks! They also reduced access to basic drug and dental benefits, eliminated uniform and drink allowances, and even cut employees’ hours of work.

We are watching what’s happening in Ontario to see how profitable, multinational corporations are responding to legislation that improves working conditions for the lowest paid workers. These companies need to know that punishing their employees for government rules designed to support workers is just plain wrong.

BC’s Fight for 15 campaign is organizing two events as part of the Canada-Wide Day of Action in support of workers at Tim Hortons. We are holding an information leaflet and sign waving event at two local Tim Hortons locations this Friday, January 19: one in the morning in Surrey, and the second in the afternoon in Vancouver. Details are below.

It’s time to send Tim Hortons and its parent company, Restaurant Brands International (RBI), a strong message – stop punishing your workers!

Please attend an event. If you can’t make it, send a letter supporting workers to RBI CEO Daniel Schwartz. It’s easy. Visit http://www.fightfor15bc.ca/solidarity_with_tim_hortons_workers

Event details:

Friday, January 19, 2018

Surrey: Tim Hortons at 96th Ave and King George Blvd. Meet at the South West corner.
7:00am- 8:00am

Vancouver: Tim Hortons at 1st Ave and Commercial Drive. Meet at the North West corner.
5:00pm-6:00pm
