Campbellville, Ont. – May 30, 2019 – The Doug Ford Ontario PC government’s move to cancel the Master Framework Agreement governing beer retailing “is an assault on good-paying jobs and agreements negotiated in good faith,” says John Nock, the president of UFCW Canada Local 12R24, which represents Beer Store employees.
