Union demands ‘transparency’ on quarantine hotel program after women, racialized workers let go amid pandemic
Some critics, including one Conservative MP, say Ottawa should not be ‘subsidizing’ a hotel that is currently facing an allegation of discrimination at the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal.
Hospitality workers Elisa Cardona and Kiran Dhillon, pictured from left to right on June 7, say they feel burned after being fired from their positions at a hotel that is being used by Ottawa as part of its hotel quarantine regime. Unite Here’s Michelle Travis, pictured at right on June 7, says there is little detail about when the hotel will no longer be used by Ottawa. Screen capture via ParlVu
