Labour difficulties at Cawston Cold Storage

Labour issues lead to Labour Board hearings at Cawston Cold Storage

Labour board hearings were conducted out of Cawston Hall last week as Cawston Cold Storage dealt with an unfair labour practice complaint.

Several witnesses testified between Wednesday and Friday and statements were taken.

Words were exchanged and a volatile atmosphere replaced a normally benign work environment after an incident which allegedly took place in the parking lot of Cawston Cold Storage on Feb.29 of this year.

“We thought we were having a good year until we were blindsided by this said Operations Manager Dan Taylor.

“We have tried to settle things down – telling our employees to show respect for different points of view – there shouldn’t be conflicts like this in the workplace.”

Taylor admits that things are “pretty polarized” in the storage facility right now.
