Oct 16th, 2008 | BENTONVILLE, Ark. -- Wal-Mart Stores Inc., known for its strong stance against workers unionizing, closed a tire and lube center in Canada on Thursday where workers voted to organize.

In August, a Quebec arbitrator imposed a labor contract for tire and lube workers at a Wal-Mart in Gatineau, Quebec.

A Wal-Mart spokesman at the company's Bentonville, Ark., headquarters confirmed the closing. The United Food and Commercial Workers union called the closure an "attack" on Wal-Mart workers.

In 2005 Wal-Mart closed a store in Jonquiere, Quebec, after workers there agreed to unionize. The union has a Canada Supreme Court case pending over whether those workers' rights were violated.
