VANCOUVER - The workers who staff the concessions at the Rogers Arena took to the street tonight. They were outside the rink before tonight`s Vancouver Canucks game demanding respect from employer Aramark. They say they are fighting for better working conditions and better customer service. The workers represent cashiers, cooks, caterers, bartenders and others at the arena.
The members of Unite Here Local 40 say the employer has been dragging its feet in contract negotiations. The union wants proper staffing levels, proper access to tipping and gratuities, improved dental benefits and fair wages. Talks began last November.
