Lisa Cameron reports how a server at a popular Halifax restaurant was fired after she went into quarantine, even though earlier she was told her job would be waiting for her. That is against the law and also infringes on the worker’s human rights, she writes.

Current and former employees of Organic Earth Market on Quinpool Road in Halifax joined a picket line this morning to protest management’s efforts to stop the store workers from unionizing. According to the workers on the picket line these union busting efforts run the gamut from worker intimidation to the recent firing of two employees supportive of the unionization drive.
