Posted on 11/18/2012 11:42:16 AM PST by ColdOne
On Friday, Walmart filed an unfair labor practice charge against UFCW with the National Labor Relations Board to stop what Walmart says are illegal disturbances against its businesses.
A group of Walmart employes, encouraged by the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) and OUR Walmart, are expected to strike on Black Friday. Black Friday is the stores busiest day of the year, and this may be the largest strike against the company in its history.
Two groups affiliated with the UFCW -- OUR Walmart and Making Change at Walmart -- have been organizing demonstrations and flash mobs outside of Walmarts.

Heh, I didn’t know that about Drakes either. I thought it was a fictional name made up for a Seinfeld episode!
“I know of some Hostess employees who are looking for jobs....”
I wouldn’t hire those idiots.
I hope they both lose.
The union? Obvious.
Walmart? Well, the company’s boss, a son of Sam Walton, gave $1,000,000 to a pro-Obama PAC during the campaign.
Screw ‘em both.
see post 25
I was in a union once. Same kind of deal...the old guys negotiated a good deal for themselves, left the younger ones in the lurch. Then they said, “Well, this is the best we can get, so let’s go for it.”
I remember it well: me and another young worker were the ONLY ONES who voted to reject the contract.
Now this was when I was young and liberal....so I thought unions were GOOD then. One of those early lessons I got that eventually turned me to the right side of things.
If they don’t like Walmart policies and the want to join a union...then QUIT your job at Walmarts and go join a Union.
America is turning retarded!
Funny Bones will be missed in this household.
LOL have you seen the price a bx of Hostess pastrys are selling on ebay??
...and the shelf life expires within two weeks.
Same here. Many years ago for a Safeway. I literally wanted to smash the union rep’s face who tried to explain to me that taking money away from my paycheck was for the greater good.
WALMART - 1( donations to Obama and 2) withdrawing advertising from Rush Limbaugh show....I am finding it hard to show them the support I would have a few years ago.
Sorry, but I don’t think that WalMart will be employing any former Hostess employees.
All they know to say is, ‘Welcome to our creamy filling’.
As a longtime Philadelphian, may I recommend the Tastykakes? Nothing else can compare to Tastykake icing, cake or creme filling.
One of our friends, an 89 yr. old German woman, remarked after Obama was re-elected, “Do these people know what they are doing? He is doing just like Hitler and Mussolini were in their early days of coming to power.”
Kroger, for me. I busted my butt for them, and got nothing in return. Now they can kiss it (the UFCW, not Kroger).
IMO walmart should just tell their employees anyone scheduled to work who doesn’t show up gets fired.
Owned by Flowers Foods, now, iirc, (and they will not be bought by Bimbo in the near future).
In the Oklahoma City area (and probably others), these protests will be backed up and organized by “occupiers”. I’ve already seen them gathering support on Facebook.
As a former grocery-store employee screwed-over by the UFCW, while working at Food Fair, in 1969 - 1970, I approve this message.
As a former General Dynamics - Pomona Division employee, 1980 - 1985, screwed-over by the INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF MACHINITSTS (and aerospace workers) and , I approve this message.
As a former first-line union rep. for the ever-loved AFGE,and yes, they did it to me, too.
I approve this message.
