New migrant workers union in Quebec

Agriculture workers at Ferme B. Cousineau & fils S. E. N. C. — a Quebec field crop operation and storage facility — have become the newest members of UFCW Canada Local 501 following a successful organizing campaign.

The field crop and vegetable packing warehouse is located in Saint-Roch-de-l’Achigan, Quebec, about 60 kilometers north of Montreal. Members of the bargaining unit include migrant and temporary workers from Mexico and Guatemala. While the field crop operation is seasonal, the warehouse and packaging facility operates year-round.
