Canada's top court rules against Wal-Mart in unionization case
OTTAWA, June 27 (Reuters) - Canada's top court ruled on Friday that Wal-Mart Stores Inc violated Quebec's labor code by closing a store in the largely French-speaking province after an attempt by workers to unionize it.
In 2009, the high court had backed the right of Wal-Mart to close the store in 2005 after a union was certified to negotiate a collective agreement, but a fresh challenge was made that succeeded on Friday. (Reporting by Randall Palmer; Writing by Jeffrey Hodgson; Editing by Jeffrey Benkoe)
