The workers have been receiving encouragement and support from the Granville Island community, other workers in the area, and unions in the lower mainland, including PSAC who represents workers at the Island. They are expected to join the Solidarity Saturday picket.

“I’ve worked here for over four years, including throughout the pandemic,” said Sandra Abdiannia. “We haven’t asked for anything outlandish: Reasonable wage increases we’ve earned and that they can afford.”

The current Agreement expired at the end of May and negotiations quickly reached an impasse in June on the issue of wages.
