Dear Debra Moore, 

I am writing to communicate my support for baristas employed at your Spring Garden Road café to exercise their right to form a union. The Nova Scotia Trade Union Act enshrines the right of workers to free association and free collective bargaining. I am requesting that your respect these rights.

I understand that on March 27th you terminated two employees for their involvement in an effort to organize a union. I would like to remind you that terminating employees for exercising their rights under the Trade Union Act is illegal. I am requesting that you reinstate these workers immediately and that you voluntarily recognize a union at this workplace.

The Atlantic Region of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) represents some 20,000 workers in Atlantic Canada. We have been proud to purchase Just Us coffee for our four regional offices. We have also actively promoted your fair trade products to our union members.

I regret to inform you that PSAC will stop supporting and promoting your business until you respect the rights of your employees to form a union.


Jeannie Baldwin Regional Executive Vice-President
