Report: Court reserves union ruling at Canadian Wal-Mart store


Regina, Saskatchewan A Canadian court has overturned United Food and Commercial Workers certification granted to workers at a Wal-Mart location in Weybern, Saskatchewan, according to a Retailer Daily report.

The report said that a judge overturned the certification because workers at the store voted to unionize in a public card-signing process and Canadian law has mandated union certification by secret ballot since May.

According to the UFCW, efforts to unionize Wal-Mart store employees in the Washington, D.C., area are gaining momentum. The UFCW and affiliated groups have been stepping up union organization activities in the United States and Canada since a Canadian Wal-Mart discount store location in St. Hyacinthe, Quebec, was reported to have 180 employees working under UFCW representation earlier this year.
