Daniel Huber is an Edmonton chef and founder of the Alberta Vanguard Association, an advocacy group for the restaurant industry workers. Last week, the Alberta NDP government introduced legislation to ban mandatory high heels in workplaces, a direct result of lobbying from the AVA. Now, the group has partnered with the Alberta Federation of Labour to launch fairserve.ca, a place for workers to share their stories, connect with each other, and participate in organizing and lobbying. The key advocacy points are high heels, house tipping, and payroll deductions. This is only the first step in what Huber would like to see to improve working standards in the restaurant industry.
