Updated: The local will hold a meeting for all Unit 3 members affected by the SFSS layoffs on Monday, April 10, 2-4pm, MBC 2290.

On Thursday, April 6, 2017 the Simon Fraser Student Society (SFSS) issued a notice of intent to lay off ALL of the 22 permanent and part-time CUPE members that presently work at the Highland Pub, Higher Grounds Coffee Bar, and The Ladle.  These members will be laid off as of April 28,2017 and the business will be officially closed as of June 15, 2017. 

This decision was made by the Simon Fraser Student Society Board of Directors earlier this week and comes as a complete shock to our members, some of whom have worked at the Pub for 10 years.
The Local Executive is disappointed in the SFSS’s decision and will keep you all posted as details unfold.
