Canada Wal-Mart workers appeal

August 08, 2008|From Times Wire Services

Canada's highest court agreed to hear an appeal by former employees of Wal-Mart Stores Inc. who say the company closed a Quebec store because of a union drive.

Employees at the store in 2004 became the company's first North American personnel organized by the United Food and Commercial Workers union. Wal-Mart contended that the store was unprofitable and that its 2005 closure was unrelated to the union.
