Across the country, Walmart employs 1.4 million people. That’s a million and a half moms and dads, sons and daughters, husbands and wives working hard to support their families with jobs at America’s largest private sector employer, standing together in the Organization United for Respect at Walmart (OURWalmart). For more than a year, they’ve been speaking out for good jobs with decent pay, regular hours, affordable health care and respect. But instead of working with OUR Walmart to make changes, Walmart has attempted to silence and retaliate against its workers for speaking out.Click here to learn more about how you can join us in supporting Walmart workers in our area on Black Friday, November 23.
UFCW members have been standing up for our brothers and sisters at Walmart. We know better than anyone how hard a retail job can be. We all struggle with part-time work when we need full-time hours. We all have to fight against scheduling problems, wages that aren’t what we hope for, and benefits that aren’t adequate for our families. We have a union so that we can stand together and achieve a better workplace. Walmart workers don’t, and on Black Friday, November 23, we’ll be there to show our support; click here to learn more.
Walmart workers have had their jobs threatened, hours cut and schedules changed. Some have even been fired. But they have not been silenced. Throughout the holiday season, Walmart workers will be standing up for an end to the retaliation against workers who speak out for what’s right for our families, our communities and our country, and they’re counting on you to stand with them.
Join us in supporting area Walmart workers on November 23! As UFCW members, we know that retail jobs can and should be better; that’s why we’re working to change Walmart. Commit to joining your co-workers and me on Black Friday by standing up for a real change at Walmart.
