Employees who are members of Local 247 have no right under the Collective Agreement with Westfair Foods to honour the picket line and should report to work.

Employees who have a reasonable fear for their safety may refuse to cross the picket line. Any employee who does this should immediately call into their Supervisor and make the Company aware of the situation.

Employees who refuse to cross the picket line for any other reason may be subject to discipline by the employer.

Any employees who refuses to cross the picket line and are disciplined should contact the union immediately to file a grievance.
