Report: Target’s Valley Stream, N.Y., store to vote on union

New York City -- Target Corp. and United Food and Commercial Workers Local 1500 have settled a dispute regarding which workers may cast ballots in a union election at the retailer's Valley Stream, N.Y., store, paving the way for the National Labor Relations Board to schedule the vote, Crain’s New York reported.

The election next month will apparently be the first at a Target store since 1990, when a union drive failed at a Detroit store.

The election is part of a larger campaign by the 23,000-member Local 1500 to organize workers at 27 New York-area Target stores, including all 10 in the city, the report said.
