The United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) has launched a two-pronged attack against Wal-Mart in Saskatchewan.

UFCW has applied for certification at a Wal-Mart in Weyburn, Sask., after a majority of the employees at the store signed membership cards with the union.

An application was filed earlier this week by UFCW Canada Local 1400 with the Saskatchewan Labour Relations Board, the second UFCW application in as many months. In late March, UFCW Local 1400 applied to the board to certify a Wal-Mart store in North Battleford, Sask.
