From REAP:
New Packinghouse Union in Canada
Packinghouse workers at Garden Province Meats and Larsons Meat Packers, both companies in (Atlantic)Canada filed petitions to decertify UFCW and to certify a newly formed union Atlantic Meat Packers Union (AMU).

According to reliable sources, 70 percent of the workers support AMU. The labor board certified the AMU at Larsons Meats but the petition at Garden Province Meats was dismissed on a technicality.
