Canada Supreme Court Rules In Favor Of Wal-Mart CanadaTORONTO -(Dow Jones)- Canada's top court has ruled in favor of Wal-Mart Stores Inc.'s (WMT) Canadian unit regarding the closure of a unionized store in Quebec four years ago.
The Supreme Court of Canada, which heard the case back in January, voted 6-3 for Wal-Mart Canada.
The store, located in the town of Jonquiere, made headlines in 2004 when it was unionized without a vote. But after nine contract-bargaining sessions, Wal- Mart decided to shut the store the following year, saying the store wasn't making money and the union's demands, which required hiring an additional 30 positions, would have kept it from ever being profitable.
