Union breakthrough in North American Wal-Mart store

A
Wal-Mart store in Quebec, Canada, may become the retailing company’s first
unionised store in North America.

According
to the Globe and Mail newspaper, Quebec’s Labour Board said yesterday that
workers were entitled to be represented by a union.

A
hearing to determine the scope of the bargaining unit will be held later this
month.

Wal-Mart
told the Globe and Mail it would look for ways to appeal against the decision.
