A Boston Pizza In BC Is Being Called On To End It's 'Sexist' Skirt Rule

"It objectifies women in their workplace," said the union.

A B.C. union is calling on Boston Pizza to reverse its alleged "sexist skirt policy" at a location in New Westminster. 

“Boston Pizza franchise owners have implemented a 'skirt policy' that is not only sexist, it objectifies women in their workplace,” said UFCW 1518 President Kim Novak, speaking about a policy that apparently requires female servers and hosts to wear skirts.

The union is asking that Boston Pizza ends the policy immediately and never imposes skirt mandates at any locations in the future. 

According to the union, several workers tried to bring the policy up with management directly, "but their requests were ignored."
