Yesterday, Walmart workers in Pico Rivera, CA and the surrounding area courageously held a strike in protest of Walmart’s illegal retaliation against workers who spoke out for change at the company. Today, Walmart workers from around the globe showed their support for this action by walking the striking workers back to work.
UNI Global, an important international union, is holding a conference in Los Angeles to discuss the challenges that Walmart presents for workers around the globe. Workers took time out of their busy planning and presentation schedule to show their solidarity for their American colleagues. The workers were allowed to return without incident, demonstrating that through collective action workers can stand up to Walmart and make change in their stores.
