One Response to Union Labor in Carwashes

  1. This article helps to highlight the poor working conditions of this demographic of workers. Let's keep in mind the purpose of the union is to give workers a unified voice to deter poor working conditions and benefits. In this case, a union maybe the way to go to ensure workers are receiving the minimum requirements under any occupational health and safety act. If operators are compensating fairly and providing safe working conditions then they should not fear the threat of a unionized workforce. Based on my quick lube experience my staff were always paid according to ministry guidelines and I followed occupational health and safety guidelines. If in doubt I would contact an HR consultant or your local government regarding workplace standards.
