CUPE members locked out at Le Journal de Québec can keep publishing their newspaper, MediaMatinQuebec, after the Québec appeal court ruled in their favour.
Quebecor had applied for an injunction to prevent the paper from publishing, arguing, in part, that the employees still had an obligation to remain loyal to their employer and not ply their trade elsewhere.
On Sept. 7, the Québec court of appear upheld an early superior court decision rejecting the employer’s request for an injunction.
Union spokesperson Denis Bolduc was pleased at the decision, but hastened to add “this conflict won’t be settled in court. It will be settled at the negotiating table.”
Workers at Le Journal de Québec have been locked out since Apr. 22.
