: Here`s something new, it`s time for celebration!! I`ve just heard in the
: news tonigth that workers in a Mcdonald`s restaurant have good
: chances to succeed getting an union in !!!!!! I live in Montreal,Canada,
: and this story was broadcasted all over the country on the french
: version of the CBC National News. More than 80% of 62 employees
: voted in favor of an union and the FTQ (Federation des Travailleurs
: du Quebec), a big union here in Canada, said the case is going
: in the hands of Labor Minister of Quebec, for definitive approval of
: the employees accreditation. And the FTQ said they will fight Mcdo-
: nals if the employees get harrassed. This Mcdonalds is exactly
: located near Montreal, in a city called St-Hubert. This is fantastic!!!
: Everybody watching the news in primetimes(6 and 10 o`clock pm.)
: could hear and watch the employees, in a press conference, describing their poor working conditions!! THERE`S HOPE!!!!!
: I guess you are going to hear about that news on this site soon.
: Sorry for my english, my mother tongue is french.
