Rally shows support for Tim Hortons workers in Peterborough

January 11, 2018

About 30 demonstrators gathered at Tim Hortons on Monaghan Rd. at Lansdowne St. W. on Wednesday to protest reductions to employee benefits at some of the chain’s locations.

Some Tim Hortons have cut out paid breaks and health benefits following the minimum wage increase to $14.

Demonstrators at the local rally represented the Peterborough and District Labour Council, the Council of Canadians, Unifor and CUPE.

It was one of several rallies planned outside Tim Hortons locations in Southern Ontario on Wednesday, all organized by the Ontario Federation of Labour.

There were rallies planned at nine locations in Toronto as well as in London, Guelph, Windsor, Dundas and Cobourg.

In Peterborough, demonstrators marched in the freezing rain and waved large union flags.
