I don't know how much it means to most of the ILUG members, but Aldi's
policy towards union organisation among its employees has historically
been very hostile, bordering on the illegal, and certainly flouting
the spirit of the UN Convention on Human Rights. Anyone who supports
the principles of organised labour is advised to look carefully at the
employment policies of Aldi before shopping there.
Just my socialist 2 cents worth.
