The 1st Swiss Chalet Human Resources Award goes to: Swiss Chalet

Swiss Chalet closed its chicken joint at Woodbine and Steelcase (a few blocks north of Toronto) and opened another franchise just across the street.

The company offered to send its old waitresses to other sites. But they didn't offer them the same hours. Not wanting part-time jobs the poor old gals were forced to quit. Dina had 27 years. Effi 24 years. Amy and Li, 18. Eva, 17. They're not spring chickens. Who's going to hire them now? No one cares, including their union.
