The HBC Logistics employees, who process online orders from across Canada, have been without a contract for more than a year.

The workers walked off the job on Wednesday, June 22 after the last round of negotiations broke down. Due to the pandemic, contract negotiations were delayed.

According to the workers’ union, Unifor, one of the main points of contention is that the employer has “refused to offer any retroactive increase for the period that they continued to work without a contract during COVID-19.”

A year without a contract and HBC doesn't want to make any concessions retroactive - no, that's not okay.

Solidarity with the workers!

Don't forget to not order from HBC while they deal with their labour issue. Don't cross the virtual picket lines!

What's more Canadian than underpaying your workers and denying their humanity?
