Toronto, Ontario-"A majority of 100 drivers, driver/helpers and warehouse workers of Sleep Country Canada’s Toronto distribution center voted this week to be represented by UNITE HERE. Sleep Country is Canada’s leading, and best-known, specialty retailer of mattresses. Best known? The entire nation can sing their advertising jingle by heart.
Despite Sleep Country’s great commercial success, drivers, driver/helpers and warehouse workers were quick to sign up for union representation: they were especially concerned about increasing workload and no seniority rights. First contract negotiations are to begin immediately.
