Union Labor Disputes Canada

Wal-Mart Canada

This abstract presents a foreshadow for what would be the foundation for a full ev*****luative report on the retail giant Wal-Mart and the effects recent labor disputes have had on ***** likes of Canadian labor legislation, local labor dispute resolutions and the intervention on the part ***** unions to recruit ***** employees. There is no better presentation than one that ***** ***** varying opinions in philosophy between unions ***** employers. In the United States, the ***** giant Wal-Mart has been trying to fend off multiple attacks by organized labor as the retail conglomerate ***** ***** to consistently contend with what could be considered an increasingly turbulent work force. In June of 2004 for example, unions in ***** ***** States were making a concerted effort to plan and implement a multi-million dollar campaign to organize Wal-Mart's existing and potential employees.

At a time ***** globalization and technological advances have helped Wal-Mart to expand and turn consistent profits, the retailer has been outwardly criticized for *****ing wages ***** working conditions that are far too low.
