Once hailed as heroes, Ontario grocery store workers now push for vaccine access, paid sick days

What my employer offers part timers is determined by collective bargaining, while what other grocery stores offer is determined by a bunch of factors, including optics. They all offer a better deal than what the union fights for us.

Everyone who works at this store lives a five minute walk away or less and management walks on egg shells, terrified of hourly staff quitting, so there's no discipline--- they wouldn't be there otherwise. They're handcuffed from seeking out winners and paying more and rewarding their existing staff, so I get paid to basically go to a high school where I lift some boxes and get to take hourly breaks because "that's how we do things around here". But they don't improve our conditions-- not in the slightest.
