The Ontario Federation of Labour has issued a boycott of Canadian Niagara Hotels.
President Chris Buckley says the Federation is backing the Rainforest Cafe workers who have been on strike for just over a month.
"We're asking people not to use these facilities until the employer wakes up, comes back to the bargaining table and negotiates a fair, collective, agreement."
Buckley says the strike centres around serious sexual harassment allegations and reports of the employer clawing back employee tips. But he adds there is no issue on the table that can't be resolved.
The boycott includes the following locations owned by CNH;
- Rainforest Cafe
- Hard Rock Cafe
- Crowne Plaza Hotel
- Skyline Hotel & Perkins
- Sheraton on the Falls Hotel
- Clifton Victoria Inn
- Marriott Fallsview
