Dec. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Workers at a Wal-Mart Stores Inc. outlet in Canada will be represented by a union after more than four years of legal challenges by the retailer, the United Food and Commercial Workers said.

The Saskatchewan Labour Relations Board granted union status yesterday to workers at a store in Weyburn, Saskatchewan, the group said in a statement today. The application was submitted in April 2004.

Employees at three of the Bentonville, Arkansas-based retailers locations in Quebec are already represented by the union. Applications for unionization of two others in Saskatchewan are before the labor board.

In April 2007, the Supreme Court of Canada declined to hear an appeal from Wal-Mart.

2. I've always wondered why does a company's stock fall when the employees get a break?
When a company lays off workers the stock goes up. Upside down to me.
