Cleaning staff who work at Loyalist vote in favour of strike


A group of cleaning staff who work at Loyalist College have voted in favour of a strike. The staff, who are employed by Compass Group Canada and are members of the Service Employees Union Local 2, have not had a contract since the end of 2022. While negotiations have been in process since March 2023, union spokesperson Sharoni Mitra said that “the employer has failed to provide any monetary proposals and has delayed negotiations.” The cleaners are reportedly fully prepared to stop working and to take job action when the College reopens in September.
