Almost 1,000 concession stand workers at Vancouver's Rogers Arena will be out of work in a few months.
On March 11, the workers, at least 600 of which are members of UNITE HERE! Local 40, were notified that Canucks Sports & Entertainment were ending their relationship with Aramark Canada Ltd. Their contract with the food service management company was not slated to end until 2015.
"We're excited about some big changes with our food and beverage program that will offer fresh and innovative new options at every event here at our arena," said Victor de Bonis, Canucks Sports & Entertainment's Chief Operating Officer, in a written statement. They plan on hiring 1,000 new staff for their food and beverage program.
