    Steelworkers oust Christian Labour Association at lumber re-manufacturing operation - Canada NewsWire
    By an 82-per-cent majority, workers elected to join Steelworkers' Fraser Valley Local 1-3567, thereby decertifying from the Christian Labour Association of Canada (CLAC) which is regarded as an employer-friendly organization by the mainstream labour movement.

    'We welcome these workers into our union,' said Hunt. 'The Steelworkers will work with our new members to negotiate improved wages, benefits and working conditions. In our opinion, wherever the CLAC is found in BC or elsewhere in Canada, workers' legitimate interests are being denied.'
