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.

Business Group Wants Union Organizing Rule Rescinded
Updated On: Apr 20, 2018
April 19, 2018 | WAR ON WORKERS | The National Retail Federation (NRF) issued a letter to federal officials Wednesday asking them to rescind a recent rule which speeds up union elections. Former President Barack Obama oversaw a very active administration when it came to labor policy. The purpose was to better protect workers by strengthening regulations and unions. The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) ushered in changes to union election procedures in those years which critics have called the “ambush election” rule. The rule shortens the amount of time union elections are held from a typical 38 days to as little as 10 days. The NRF is calling on the board to end the rule outright, or at least make significant modifications. Inside Sources
