Personal coaches and class instructors at GoodLife Fitness say their current contracts just aren’t working out.

A group of employees at the gym chain’s Toronto-area locations are campaigning for union representation. The workers have expressed concern over low wages, non-compete clauses and a lack of injury insurance.

Workers United Canada Council, an affiliate of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), is seeking to represent the employees.
