LAVAL, Que. — A unionization battle against convenience-store giant Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc., Laval, Que., has been announced by the Confédération des syndicats nationaux (CSN), Quebec’s second-largest union.
CSN claims a formal request for certification from 12 employees has been submitted to Quebec’s labour relations commission.
Jean Lortie, head of the CSN’s retail division, said ongoing work over several months leads him to believe employees at some 50 others stores in the Montreal area could also be signed up. “This is a big chain, a billionaire’s club chain, and we believe there is a way to get better working conditions for the workers,” he is quoted as saying in the National Post.
