Reposted from Making Change at Walmart
In the past few years, OUR Walmart members have won hard-fought changes at America’s largest retailer. Their bravery, dedication and many actions calling on the Waltons and Walmart to treat Walmart workers better have led to reformed policies for pregnant workers, more transparent scheduling, a raise for Walmart’s lowest paid workers and improved working conditions across the nation.
This past Black Friday, protesters turned out at store locations all over the country, asking Walmart to pay workers $15 an hour and provide access to full-time hours so that associates can afford to make ends meet. Workers went on strike to protest retaliation against workers who stand up for such changes.
Instead of responding to these calls for change, many Walmart managers have been illegally spying on, disciplining and even firing workers who spoke out.
Despite Walmart’s publicly stated anti-retaliation policy, the company has allowed these managers to get away with targeting workers who exercise their rights. These managers have upended the lives of workers, leaving many with no answer as to where money for rent or the next grocery visit will come from.
That’s why OUR Walmart members are calling on Walmart to either discipline these rogue managers or own up to its anti-worker policy. It’s time to end Walmart’s culture of intimidation
