Wal-mart Fails In Attempt To De-unionize Store

Recommended Posts



MONTREAL (CP) - Wal-Mart has lost in its bid to reverse a decision by Quebec Labour Relations Board to unionize its store in St-Hyacinthe.


Quebec Superior Court last week ruled that the request for a judicial review was "premature."


The world's largest retailer said some employees had been excluded from the accredited union local. If these people were included, the company argued there wouldn't have been union certification.


The Food and Commercial Workers Union argued that the request was premature because the company hadn't pursued available requests for review by the labour board.


The store in St-Hyacinthe, Que., east of Montreal, became the only unionized Wal-Mart location in North America after a store in Saguenay, Que., was closed on April 29.
