Forgetting about Customers

The UFCW opposes amending a law to allow Walmart to stay open until 11:00 pm in Quebec. Somehow, the union thinks allowing the retailer to remain open late at night would result in “unfair competition.”

Allowing Walmart to remain open until 11:00 PM every day would radically upset the balance among retail businesses. As a result, there would be unfair competition from the American giant with Rona, Reno-Depot and other hardware stores as well as all retail businesses and even shopping centres.
