One of Canada's highest-paid union leaders has abruptly retired as national director of the United Food and Commercial Workers.

Michael Fraser left the union at the end of April after six and a half years as director. The UFCW, one of the country's biggest unions, said he left to spend more time with his family.

"UFCW Canada will always be a part of my life, just a smaller part," Fraser said in a union statement.
