Farm workers flown to Mexico to thwart B.C. union vote

Abbotsford, B.C. (19 Sep. 2008) – A group of 14 migrant farm workers at Floralia Plant Growers in Abbotsford have been fired from their jobs and flown home to Mexico after filing papers to join a union.

The United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW Canada) said the abrupt action occurred the day after the owners discovered an application to certify the UFCW as bargaining agent for its workers was filed with the B.C. Labour Relations Board (BCLRB).
