Campbell River's Coast Discovery Inn to close March 7

The Coast Discovery Inn in Campbell River will shut down effective March 7, a letter to its union says.

The letter, from Genereal Manager/Owner Sukhy Bains, said he regretted the decision but that “we cannot continue to sustain the financial losses associated with staying in business.”

The letter was pursuant to section 54 of the B.C. Labour Relations Code in which the employer must give 60 days notice for such an action to the Health and Hospitality Union, local 40.

Under that regulation the two sides must meet to arrange an adjustment plan. Under the code that adjustment could include:

• Consideration of alternatives to the proposed measure, policy, practice or change, including amendment of provisions in the collective agreement;

• Human resource planning and employee counselling and retraining;

• Notice of termination;

• Severance pay;

• Entitlement to pension and other benefits including early retirement benefits;

• A bipartite process for overseeing the implementation of the adjustment plan.

Bains was out of town on business and could not be reached by press time.
