However workers in the Walmarts in Jonquiere Quebec have petitioned 
for a union and according to reports in the Guardian, Gazette and various 
French language websites, local 503 TUAC (Travailleurs et travailleuses 
unis de l'alimentation et du commerce) are officially recognized by the 
Quebec Labor Department as having the right to bargain for the workers.

Quebec law forbids a company from closing a location to block a union 

More later.  But I don't think all the labor news from Canada is negative.
