Two rulings last week in the Journal de Québec’s labour dispute, one for each side:
- A judge rules in favour of Quebecor, saying that journalists from the Journal’s sister paper the Journal de Montréal can’t prohibit the company from using their articles in the Journal de Québec. Quebecor had been using their copy in the JDQ to fill the space left by the journalists on the picket lines.
- As an example of the level of silliness this has reached, a judge rules in favour of the employees who are using the Journal’s logo in their protest banners (so people know who they are and what they’re protesting). Seriously, they’re wasting the court’s time with this?
