Quote:
 On the heels of a settlement reached by Service Employees International Union and Unite Here to end a bitter 18-month dispute over a separation between Workers United/SEIU and Unite Here, a settlement has been negotiated in Ontario following hours of intense around the clock negotiations...

The terms of settlement mean that:

  • Workers United will retain all of its apparel, manufacturing, distribution and social service units in Ontario while UNITE HERE will retain all its hotels units in Toronto and Ottawa
  • UNITE HERE will have exclusive organizing jurisdiction in the Greater Toronto Area and Ottawa for hotels but both parties will have equal jurisdiction anywhere else.
  • Workers United will retain its non-gaming units in Niagara Region and Windsor Region including hotels and social clubs
  • UNITE HERE will represent the food service units at University of Toronto and York University
  • Workers United will represent all other food services units with the exception of the Rogers Centre which will be arbitrated.
