Canada’s Supreme Court to Hear Wal-Mart Case
New York City The Supreme Court of Canada has agreed to hear two cases stemming from Wal-Mart’s controversial closing of a unionized store in Quebec.
The store, located in Jonquiere, closed in 2005 after workers had agreed to be represented by the United Food and Commercial Workers and were negotiating their first contract. Wal-Mart said the store was not profitable. The court agreed to hear the case after a Quebec court sided with Wal-Mart, according to reports.
