I hope Wal-Mart will never give in to the pressure from the Unions. I believe almost none of their stores in North America have any union association, although there was some talk about Wal-Mart looking at a Chinese union for their workers, whether it was for their North American workers or for their workers in China (if they have stores there) ... I don't know. Wal-Mart knows that unions are like a cancer that kills an enterprise in its infancy. My hat's off to the CEO and the people at Wal Mart who stood firm on the Union issue. To show my appreciation I am going to Wal-Mart Toronto today to spend some money.
The Supreme Court of Canada says Wal-Mart was entitled to close a store in Quebec in 2005 just as employees were about to unionize.
