Media Advisory – TODAY: Striking Hotel Workers to Rally at Larco-Owned Bridge Studios in Burnaby

Strikers and allies call on Larco to pay their hospitality workers a living wage after nine months on strike


Burnaby, BC — TODAY, Sheraton Vancouver Airport hotel workers, alongside community allies, will be rallying at Bridge Studios in Burnaby. Bridge Studios and the Sheraton Vancouver Airport hotel share the same parent company, Larco. The Bridge Studios franchise is an integral part of the Lower Mainland’s highly lucrative film industry and is a job creator in Burnaby with a growing footprint in the city. The company is currently constructing what is set to be Canada’s largest film and TV studio upon completion at Lake City Way. Unionized productions take place at the studio with members from IATSE, Teamsters, ICG, DGC, and ACTRA.


Sheraton Vancouver Airport hotel workers, many who reside in Burnaby, walked off the job in June last year in their fight for pay increases that will bring them to Metro Vancouver’s living wage of $25.68 per hour. Recently, on behalf of Burnaby City Council, Mayor of Burnaby Mike Hurley sent a letter to the owner of Bridge Studios and the Sheraton Vancouver Airport urging the company to reach a fair settlement with striking staff from the hotel.
