UFCW Is Close To Organizing First Wal-Mart In North America

By Doug Cunningham

The United Food and Commercial Workers union may be close to organizing a Wal-Mart store in Canada. Contract negotiations at the store in St. Hyacinthe, Quebec have resolved all issues except wages. The UFCW says the store is much closer to its first collective bargaining agreement, with the pay issue going to arbitration in November. Bob Linton is with UFCW Canada.

: "We're guardedly optimistic. Obviously the monetary issues are a significant part of that collective agreement. And if we can get that hopefully everything else will flow smoothly from there."

This would be the first collective bargaining agreement at a Wal-Mart store in North America.
