The Economic Times reports that the trade union arm of the CPM, Citu, is reportedly holding talks with the American Federation of Labour (AFL) to collaborate and tie up with their counterparts. In this regard, Citu has asked for AFL’s cooperation in organizing and implementing a nationwide campaign against Wal-Mart’s entry into the Indian market. According to MK Pandhey, Citu President, “AFL delegates will attend our national conference in New Delhi in January 2007. They will make presentations highlighting instances of Wal-Mart’s anti-employee stance across its retail chain in the US."
