Coming up on this week’s show, Rank and File Radio interviews Kendra Coulter on the growing retail sector in Canada and the struggle of retail workers for rights and labour representation. We also discuss the recent Target takeover of 220+ Zellers stores and the closure by the Hudson’s Bay Company of their remaining 64 Zellers stores with the loss of 6400 jobs.

Be sure to check out Kendra’s research project Revolutionizing Retail: “Highlighting retail workers’ political action – and ways to improve retail work.”

And for some online activism, visit Target Fairness, UFCW’s campaign for Zellers workers rights.
