Canada Supreme Court Hears Wal-Mart Case

Workers from a unionized Wal-Mart store that was shut down by the retailer in 2005 had their case heard by the Supreme Court of Canada Wednesday.

OTTAWA — Workers from a unionized Wal-Mart store that was shut down by the retailer in 2005 had their case heard by the Supreme Court of Canada Wednesday.

The workers, who had won union representation shortly before Wal-Mart Canada closed the store in Jonquierre, Quebec, are seeking to overturn two lower court decisions that allowed Wal-Mart to shut down the store because, the retailer said, union demands would have resulted in unsustainable operational costs.
