As Wal Mart Employees Strike, Wal-Mart Shows The Uselessness of U
Wal Mart, the world’s largest store, is fighting against a workforce preparing to walkout on Black Friday. According to CNN Money, Wal-Mart has turned to close friends,the federal government, accusing one of the world’s largest labor unions in the country, Union Food and Commercial Workers Union, of unlawfully organizing its workers. The situation brings to the table the National Labor Relations Act of 1935 and related legislation, and the ultimate reality draws more parallels between the US and banana republics.
The complaint, which also names UFCW’s subsidiary OURWalmart, states that the labor union is forcing the store into collective bargaining, although it is not the “official” union for Wal Mart employees. The UCFW is the umbrella for more than one million meat packers and food industry workers.
