Workers at Dependable Maintenance Janitorial in Toronto became unionized on Aug. 13 after voting to become members of the United Food and Commercial Workers union (UFCW) Canada, Local 175.

The workers at Dependable Maintenance Janitorial contacted the union because they felt they had no one to turn to with their concerns, having never met their management, says the union.

Among the reasons for reaching out to join the union, employees wanted to improve their wages as well as their health and welfare benefits and sick days, says UFCW.
