Wal-Mart's Black Eye on Black Friday

Wal-Mart workers are planning a series of strikes and protests on Black Friday. We stand with them!

An organization of Wal-Mart workers is launching a series of strikes on Black Friday to protest Walmart's retaliation against workers' attempts to organize at the anti-labor retail giant.

Workers are planning to strike in Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, Milwaukee, Washington D.C., Oklahoma, Mississippi, Louisiana and Minnesota.

Employees and supporters are organizing 1,000 protests around the country at Walmart stores, including walkouts, flash mobs, and informational leafleting.

The protests are supported by the UFCW's Making Change at Wal-Mart Campaign.

Strikers say that Walmart punishes employees who talk about unions or join in labor groups by cutting their hours or finding excuses to terminate them.

The strikes began earlier this year when Wal-Mart workers walked off the jobs in stores and distribution centers that supply warehouse.

The recent TDU Convention featured a speaker on the Wal-Mart walkouts: Matt Meinster of Warehouse Workers for Justice.

Wal-Mart's poverty wages and anti-labor practices are nothing to be thankful for. TDU stands with striking Wal-Mart workers this Thanksgiving and on Black Friday.

You can adopt a striking worker. The Change at Wal-Mart Campaign is providing grocery cards so strikers who lose a day’s pay don’t go hungry at the holidays. Click here for more information.
