Mexican migrant workers at three farms in Quebec and one farm in Manitoba have applied to join the United Food and Commercial Workers of Canada union.

Wages and living conditions for the thousands of migrant workers who come to Canada every year from Mexico are set up by the Mexican and Canadian governments under the federal government's Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program (SWAP).
