Skip to comments.Soros’ MoveOn.org trying to rally Wal-Mart workers for Black Friday strike
Posted on 11/20/2012 7:40:32 AM PST by Qbert
Left-wing billionaire George Soros MoveOn.org has jumped into the fight for a unionized Wal-Mart workforce.
MoveOn.org has sent emails to subscribers nationwide, urging them to descend on Wal-Mart stores on Black Friday. The organization is encouraging people to strike against management even if they arent Wal-Mart employees.
Instead of listening to and learning from its workers, Wal-Mart has sought to silence us and retaliate against those who dare to speak up, MoveOn.org said in its email to supporters. Warehouse workers who work for Wal-Mart contractors have also experienced retaliation for speaking out. Now, Wal-Mart workers have had enough.
Black Friday is traditionally the busiest shopping day of the year.
On Black Friday, and throughout the Holiday Season, were standing up for an end to the retaliation against workers who speak out for whats right for our families, our communities, and our country, Soros group continued. Will you show your support?
Liberal union groups OUR Wal-Mart and Making Change at Wal-Mart, which are working to organize the planned strike, are aggressively trying to harness dues from Wal-Marts massive workforce.
But Wal-Mart is notorious for opposing organized labors efforts to unionize its workforce.
At every turn, since the days Sam Walton ran the company, Wal-Mart has mostly won its battles against those unions. That hasnt stopped the nations big labor unions from continually trying to pry their way into the Arkansas-headquartered superstore chain, however.
In recent weeks, unions have stepped up their efforts to gain influence among Wal-Marts workforce, which is one of the largest in the country totaling about 1.4 million people nationwide, by MoveOn.orgs estimates. Such a large workforce would potentially bring in billions in union dues for whichever labor group gets to the workers first.
The unions have tried various demonstrations, and are threatening these Black Friday strikes across the country to force Wal-Mart into caving on collective bargaining and other labor union demands.
With Soros on board this time around, though, and a liberal National Labor Relations Board that will stay that way for at least the next four years because of President Barack Obamas re-election, the unions appear emboldened.

Even so, CNN reports that Wal-Mart has fought back against these recent union attempts to take over the companys workforce. Wal-Mart filed a complaint with the NLRB, alleging that United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) union bosses were violating the law by organizing flash mobs and other activities that potentially violate the National Labor Relations Act.
The UFCW has orchestrated numerous pickets, mass demonstrations, flash mobs and other confrontational activities both inside and outside Wal-Mart facilities in support of its bargaining and recognition demands, Wal-Mart counsel Steven Wheeless wrote in the companys NLRB complaint. Now, with the busiest shopping season of the year just days away, the UFCW is openly orchestrating and promoting attempted mass disruptions of Wal-Marts customer shopping experience.

So which is Soros most like: Ernst Stavro Blofeld? Or Auric Goldfinger?
funny how these unions are now all going on strike and causing crap
Worked out so well for Hostess.
There are plenty of amigos willing and able to take their places.
Hope Walton’s kid goes to Obama to collect on the multi million dollar donation he made to the haloed one’s campaign. I’m sure Obama will set this all right//sarc
BUT, it's hard to generate any sympathy for this current generation of Wal*Mart Walton family owners who sold-out to Barry.
Yeah, Soros is down with the poor...Maybe he can do the Hollywood millionaire strut - put on a baseball hat and talk ‘truck driver’... two bit phony...
“Maybe you should ask Baraqoclaus for it.”
Criminal? I’d go further - they’re working for Satan himself, and know it.
Soros really wants this country to explode.
One day Soros-like totalitarian(s) will detonate himself
(themselves) in Walmart(s) during Black Flag Friday.
Next Ubama will gift them with Card Check, and the NLRB will gift them by requiring all employers to turn over the names and addresses of all their employees.
All they have to do to unionize your company is forge a bunch of signatures of employees to a petition and submit it to the NLRB. No actual consent of employer or employee required.
This time next year we'll all be paying "union dues" to the Democrat campaign finance slush fund.
Today the Port of Oakland is SHUT DOWN - because of a small groups of about 5 SEIU union thugs who are at the various gates, blocking trucks.
I can’t believe the management and politicians in charge of the port are allowing this to happen
"funny how these unions are now all going on strike and causing crap"
Yep. Now that Obama is safely back in again, the left wants to cause as much economic turmoil as possible (so they can press for even more government control over the economy, in order to "save" it). These are the people that "care" for the workers, after all...
He has groomed his son to take his place.
End of the month and Soros wants the obam administration to show lower quarterly sales? Is he a racist?
Fire them all, ala Reagan. I am sure WalMart would have no problem filling the jobs.
exactly...they deserve everything they get....
*This is one scary SOB. It is a long read but it will help you to understand why certain things are happening with the current administration.Who Is George Soros?
