Correction and apology
In the March 29 print-edition story “Avengers assemble” and in a March 23 online story at thecoast.ca, we mistakenly reported that the cleaning staff at Founders Square are employees of The Armour Group Limited, when cleaning services are actually subcontracted to a third party. It was GDI Integrated Facilities Services that held the contract until it was recently terminated by Armour, and Deep Down Cleaning Services has the contract—and the hiring decisions—going forward. Corrections have been made in the online story, headlined “Union for Founders Square janitors claims racism behind hiring,” to reflect the facts. We apologize unreservedly to Armour Group and its subsidiaries for the misunderstanding.
