Grievance filed over 247 lanyards and pens

As you may already be aware, the folks down at Westfair Industrial Relations have informed all of their supervisors that employees are not to be allowed to wear the UFCW 247 Lanyards or Rope Pens many of you have. In their opinion they do not conform to the Westfair dress code.

We have filed a grievance with the company as we feel this is a violation of the employees' freedom of expression and is a violation of Article 3.3 and other provisions of the collective agreement. We would ask that you not wear the lanyards or pens at this time to avoid any potential discipline and we will update you as the matter progresses.
