Retail workers at the Canada Computers and Electronics location in Kingston, Ont., are the newest members of United Food and Commercial Workers Canada union (UFCW), Local 102 after voting on Sept. 9 to join the union.
The major issues for the Kingston employees were wages, respect, a greater say in their working conditions and job security. This is the third Canada Computer location in Ontario where workers have voted to join Local 102, said the union.
Canada Computers is a retailer of personal computers, IT components, and consumer electronics. The new members work as retail consultants, customer service agents, and computer technicians, said UFCW.
