Unifor Local 87-M filed a grievance against the Waterloo Region Record, claiming the Ontario-based company failed to compensate employees as required by the collective agreement.

The Waterloo Region Record produces a newspaper that frequently includes advertising known as a "vendor support feature."

Vendor support feature advertising features a client who is showcased by the employer and then supported by other clients who place advertising in support of the featured client.
