There is a war coming to a Wal-Mart near you in Canada. The world's biggest retailer opens a new store every 42 hours. Two stores out of over 5,000 stores are union. One of the union stores is being closed as Wal-Mart claims it is losing money. The other store is in negotiations with the union.
The one remaining store that is union, has been found guilty of harrassing employees and has been ordered to cease this behaviour by the Quebec Labour Relations Board.
So why do I have Dieppe, Vimy Ridge, Normandy and Wal-Mart in the same title? The Left Coaster has the connection right here.
The UFCW in BC is currently helping employees that want to join the union at seven Wal-Mart Tire and Lube departments.
