Threatened Wal-Mart Strike Pays Off

The GMB and ASDA (British general workers' union and Wal-Mart owned grocery chain) have reached agreement this morning at 3:30 a.m. to govern how employees will be represented by the union, as well as creating a kind of joint council which will have certain limited powers to deal with disputes and training. In addition, the union gets access to corporate leaders twice a year in formal meetings designed to promote cooperation between the parties.

Not bad.
