    Wal-Mart in Cranbrook, B.C. goes union - UFCW Canada
    It is the first time a majority of workers at a Wal-Mart location in Canada have voted to unionize and a sign that the tide is turning against Wal-Mart’s union busting tactics according to UFCW Canada’s national director Michael J. Fraser.

    “Wal-Mart says that, given a chance to vote, their employees always reject the union. Those days are over,” says Fraser.

    “Along with the Wal-Mart units in Québec, the Cranbrook vote is proof that a growing number of Wal-Mart Canada workers aren’t scared by Wal-Mart’s bully tactics,” says Fraser. “They realize nothing will change at Wal-Mart unless they have a union and a fair collective agreement.”
