The B.C. Labour Relations Board has ruled that the Mexican government blacklisted seasonal agriculture workers who formed a union at their workplace in the lower B.C. mainland.
The Board found that the Mexican government improperly interfered by identifying workers who were a part of United Food and Commercial Workers at Sidhu & Sons Nursery, a flower growing operation in Abbotsford, B.C. and prevented them from returning to Canada to work under the Seasonal Agricultural Worker Program (SWAP).
