Case # 34920
United Food and Commercial Workers, Local 503 v. Wal Mart Canada Corp.. (December 6, 2013)
In April 2005, the respondent Wal Mart Canada Corp. permanently closed its store in Jonquière. The closure led the applicant United Food and Commercial Workers, Local 503, to institute a number of legal proceedings against Wal Mart. The central issue was whether the grievance arbitrator had jurisdiction to decide the complaint made by the union.
