News | News Brief: Sheraton engages teenage scabs

On August 29, the Quebec Labour Relations Commission ordered Montreal’s Sheraton Four Points hotel – where nearly 70 unionized workers have been striking since August 25 – to discontinue the employment of six scabs. While the hotel claimed they were volunteers, the Confederation of National Trade Unions (CSN) accused the hotel of offering compensation – monetary or otherwise.

The Four Points admitted the six workers performed the tasks of CSN members, according to the Commission’s report.

Four of the workers were minors, ranging in age from 13 to 16. Three were family members of Four Points management, and one was a friend of a manager’s son.
