NLRB TO PROSECUTE WALMART…

From OURWalmart:
The National Labor Relations Board General Counsel is issuing a decision today to prosecute Walmart for its widespread violations of its workers’ rights. The decision will provide additional protection for Walmart’s 1.3 million employees when they are speaking out for better jobs at the country’s largest employer. The Board will prosecute Walmart’s illegal firings and disciplinary actions involving more than 117 workers, including those who went on strike last June, according to the decision. The decision addresses threats by managers and the company’s national spokesperson for discouraging workers from striking and for taking illegal disciplinary actions against workers who were on legally protected strikes. Workers could be awarded back pay, reinstatement and the reversal of disciplinary actions through the decision; and Walmart could be required to inform and educate all employees of their legally protected rights.

    Update- NLRB have filed  a formal complaint charging Walmart has violated workers rights to protesting and striking. NLRB also states that Walmart has illegally disciplined, threatened and even fired workers that have participated. Walmart has until Jan.28,2014 to respond. The next step is the courts will issue a hearing date. 
    I feel this is a big win for workers every where because with the NLRB findings that Walmart has violated workers rights to speak out, organize in the work place and to protest/strike the government is not going to just sit there and let Walmart  brake federal labor laws. I feel very confident that we will continue to win when it comes to the ruling from a judge about this matter.
