Today in Labor History

August 15, 2008
Eight automotive department employees at a Walmart near Ottawa won an arbitrator-imposed contract after voting for UFCW representation, becoming the giant retailer's only location in North America with a collective bargaining agreement. Two months later the company closed the department. Three years earlier Walmart had closed an entire store on the same day the government announced an arbitrator would impose a contract agreement there.

Despite Rain, Picnic a Great Day at the Park
Updated On: Aug 15, 2011

   Though the weather gods didn't get our memo request for sunshine and pleasant temperatures, the fantastic turnout for our Local Union picnic Saturday, August 13, made the family-friendly event a huge success.

   Intermittent thunderstorms and humid temperatures didn't stop more than 250 members and their families from attending our first-ever picnic at Rocky Point State Park. With plenty of food, drink and entertainment to be had under the large pavilion near the beach, there wasn't much need for blankets and beach balls, though a few people didn't let a few raindrops get in the way of a refreshing swim. Face painting and balloon animals were a hit with the kids, and few could resist hitting the grassy, though damp, "dance floor." 

   Many thanks to all who helped make our Day in the Park, well, a great day in the park!
