  Union Nationale
The Union Nationale was originally a coalition of the Conservative Party and the ACTION LIBÉRALE NATIONALE, formed to contest the 1935 provincial election in Québec.
The Union Nationale under Duplessis was elected again in 1944, having accused the Liberals, provincial and federal, of betraying Québec's rights.
The Union Nationale was completely dominated by Duplessis until his death in September 1959; it was then led by Paul SAUVÉ; until his death less than 4 months later.

  Union Nationale - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
The Union Nationale was a political party in Quebec, Canada, that identified with conservative French-Canadian nationalism.
Because the Union Nationale was launched only two weeks before the election, the ALN and Conservatives ran separately in the 1935 Quebec election but did not compete against each other.
The Union Nationale was strongly aligned with the clergy in the province, and dominated Quebec politics during the Duplessis years using repressive measures such as the Padlock Law to suppress opposition and particularly the trade unions.

The Union Nationale is born of the merging of two political parties: the Conservative Party, founded during the XIXth Century and led by Maurice Duplessis, and the Action Libérale nationale, a splinter group of the Liberal Party led by Paul Gouin since it's foundation in 1934.
Both parties concluded an alliance against the Liberal Party, the "Union Nationale Duplessis-Gouin", for the 1935 general elections, and merged in 1936 under the direction of Maurice Duplessis.
The last MNAs elected under the label "Union Nationale" were elected during the 1976 general election, with Rodrigue Biron as leader, boosted by the protest vote of the english-speaking Quebecers against the "Loi 22" voted by the Liberal government in 1974.

 Liberal Party of Quebec   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
Until the 1930s, its main opposition was the Conservatives, and that party's successor, the Union Nationale until the 1970s.
By 1935, however, the Conservatives had an ambitious new leader, Maurice Duplessis, who merged his party with dissident ex-Liberals of the Action libérale nationale; to form a new party, the Union Nationale.
Under Jean Lesage, the party won an historic election in 1960, ending sixteen years of rule by the conservative Union Nationale, and ushering in the Quiet Revolution.

Following Duplessis's death in 1959, the Union Nationale's hold on power was broken by the victory of the Liberal Party in the election of 22 June 1960, with the Liberals' 51 seats and 51.5% of the popular vote against the Union Nationale's 43 seats and 46.6% of the vote.
The Union Nationale is made up of members of the public who, out of a desire to set aside all petty displays of partisan politics, have recognized the urgent need for brisk and constructive political action in order to provide help to all the inhabitants of the province.
The second Union Nationale administration had even fewer reasons to change the electoral map, for the party's victory in the 1944 election was plainly due to the disproportionate weighting of the rural ridings.

 Internationally Recognized core Labour Standards in Benin
In Benin’s major export sector, cotton, trade unions are scarcely present on the production side, as it has not been possible to engage in trade union organizing in the small-scale and family ventures which characterize this sector.
It must be emphasized that the government’s repression of legitimate trade union actions in the wake of the 1994 CFA franc devaluation, detailed above, was one among a number of similar and extremely serious violations of trade union rights undertaken by several governments in the CFA franc zone.
Trade union reports in Benin provide much anecdotal evidence of dismissals of women due to maternity leave or to their refusal of sexual advances by their employers or superiors.

The Social Democratic Front (SDF), the Democratic Union of Cameroon (Union démocratique du Cameroun, UDC) and the National Union for Democracy and Progress (Union nationale pour la démocratie et le progress, UNDP) are also vying for support — this amidst palpable animosity between Biya and the opposition.
In 2003, the SDF and UDC joined forces to form the National Coalition for Reconciliation and Reconstruction (Coalition nationale pour la réconciliation et la reconstruction, CNRR), with the aim of nominating a single candidate in the race against Biya.
Henri Hogbe Nlend, former secretary general of the Union of the People of Cameroon (Union des populations du Cameroun, UPC) and UNDP Vice-President Celestin Bedzigui are amongst those who supported Biya — but have since shifted their allegiance back to the opposition.
