I worked in the Ottawa logistics facility, the management believed that fixed term employees were not entitled to Stat holiday pay, claimed that the Union made a deal so fixed terms don't get osha laws protecting them. if you ask the union if you are with them they claim that fixed terms are not apart of the union despite paying union dues they will jerk you around from person to person without properly protecting or answering fixed term employee questions.
also recently they started hiring a wave of employees and turned down a certain group of returning employees surprise surprise the employees turned down just so happen to be the employees who were awarded back pay after being ignored for 3 months about the stat holiday pay problem.
also the union made a deal that fixed terms don't get two 15 minute breaks so while every other employee is getting ready to head home and are standing at the punch clock during the last 15 minutes of the shift, your still working because they get another 15 minute break, where the union traded the fixed terms last break away for whatever benefit for themselves.
aswell every employee gets the 1$ night shift premium, EXEPT fixed term employees
so those planning to take a fixed term position in the Ottawa logistics facility beware, ask them about the last 15 minute break the others get and you don't and clarify the night shift premium.
also they force overtime, its in the fixed term contract so afternoons work until 12 am, and back at 7 in the morning.
and yes I contacted the ministry of labor about the lcbo ignoring osha laws, - plus...
Working your way up the chain of commands is a long hard battle, had one shift in 6 months after the Christmas rush. If your store has high segniorty employees you'll end up fighting for the scraps they leave behind.
Unless you're the store manager, you won't get full time and your hours may be unpredictable at times. Quite stressful as the expectations exceeds the available work hours. They constantly cut back hours. Be prepared to work extra unpaid time as well
