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 ***** ***** likes of Canadian labor legislation, local ***** dispute resolutions and the intervention on the part of unions to recruit Wal-Mart employees. There is no better presentation than one that presents the varying opinions in philosophy between unions ***** employers. In the United States, the ***** giant Wal-Mart has been trying ***** fend *****f multiple attacks by organized labor as the retail conglomerate has ***** 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 ef*****t to plan and implement a multi-million dollar campaign to organize Wal-Mart's existing ***** potential employees. "Union leaders say their chances for organizing Wal-Mart workers shot up this week when a federal judge in San Francisco said 1.6 million current and ********** ***** ***** sue the retailer for sex discrim*****ation in a class-action lawsuit." (Ramstack, 2004)

As both sides are spending small *****tunes on legal re*****ati***** and lobbying eff*****ts, ***** ***** ***** ***** affect legal precedence for years ***** come. These proceedings also offer an opportunity to review how the legal situation migrated to this point.

In 2003, Wal-Mart was credited ***** adding nearly ten billion ***** dollars back into ***** economy either directly or in*****. At a time when glob*****lization and technological advances have helped Wal-Mart to exp***** and turn consistent profits, the retailer has been outwardly criticized for **********g wages and working conditions that are far *****o low. The treatment of female employees, turnover policies and other Human Resource concerns such as ***** value job creation have all be***** nightmarish ***** ***** the retailer. Wal-Mart's position ***** been quite the opposite. "Wal-Mart Canada employs more than 65,000 Canadians and h***** ***** ranked Canada's best retail employer twice during the past three years by international human-resources firm Hewitt Associates and Report on Business Magazine. The company is committed to community involvement and has contributed more ***** $35 million to Canadian charities. Wal-Mart Canada was establ*****hed in 1994, is headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario, and operates 234 Wal-Mart discount stores and six SAM'S CLUBS in
