Wal-Mart Asks NLRB to Squash Black Friday Worker Protest

1 Written by: | Tuesday, Nov 20, 2012 7:25am

With ever-earlier Black Friday sales threatening to one day completely obliterate Thanksgiving, retailers are trying harder and harder to coax consumers off their computers and into stores for the yearly American tradition of inadvertently trampling someone to death. 

This year, the notoriously anti-union Wal-Mart is scrambling to fend off a potential worker walkout this Thanksgiving (Wal-Mart is beginning its Black Friday sale at 8 p.m. on Thursday). The chain has filed a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board, claiming that the worker protest is illegal and should be squashed.

This complaint comes on the heels of union-busting firings and worker intimidation to foil the efforts of OUR Walmart to improve worker conditions, including advocating for higher wages and greater opportunities for full-time employment.
