URGENT: Support good union jobs at The Beer Store in Ontario

Toronto – January 24, 2019 – More than 7,000 hard-working and proud UFCW Local 12R24 members at Beer Store locations across Ontario need your help to protect good union jobs in the province. 

The Doug Ford government has launched an online poll about beer sales in Ontario. Changing how and where beer is sold throughout the province could have significant consequences for The Beer Store, and the jobs of 12R24 members. It could also lead to higher beer prices for consumers, as well as lost tax revenue that funds education, health care, and other vital public services.

ACT NOW! Find out more about the survey and the important contribution that The Beer Store and its hard-working employees make to communities across Ontario by going to www.beerfactsontario.ca/yourvoice.

The deadline for having your voice heard is February 1, 2019.

Please also visit www.beerfactsontario.ca/yourvoice to send a letter to your local Member of Provincial Parliament (MPP), and once you have sent a message and completed the survey, please encourage your family and friends to do the same.

Together, we can help protect good union jobs in Ontario and prevent higher beer prices for consumers.
