SASKATOON - The union representing Zellers workers in Saskatoon is campaigning against the hiring policy of an American company taking over the Canadian retail chain.

Target announced last year that it will convert more than 100 Zellers stores as part of the takeover.

The United Food and Commercial Workers Union says Target has told Zellers employees that they are welcome to reapply for the same job.

Spokesman Derek Johnstone says that isn't fair to employees who have been in the same store, doing the same job for many years.

Target has said its stores are in Canada for the long haul and the company plans to invest in communities and be socially responsible.

Johnstone says treating Zellers workers with the respect that they have earned would be a good place to start.
