Wal-Mart Canada employees have refused being unionized by the United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW) again, for the sixth time in less than two years. Results of a democratic vote to determine whether automotive sales and service employees in seven B.C. Wal-Mart stores would be represented by the UFCW were released on Friday by the British Columbia Labour Board. These Wal-Mart employees voted against union representation by the UFCW, and in favour of dealing directly with the company.
