The consequences of out-sourcing have not only affected Food Services employees but upset Albert Union of Provincial Employees Local 52 executive council as well. Shirley Maki ousted Local Chair Albi Sole from his position at the Local's annual general meeting, Mon., Mar. 7. Sole had been under fire from union members over the decision to contract out food services.
While Maki and Sole both argue the election upheaval is unassociated with the Chartwells decision, they admit that chair is a political position.
