Walmart workers in the U.S. plan on strike action on one of the year’s busiest shopping days

The Organization United for Respect at Walmart (OUR Walmart) and UFCW Local Unions in the U.S. and here in Canada are standing behind Walmart workers and their plan of action for this Friday, November 23. ‘Black Friday,’ as it’s known, marks the start of the holiday shopping season with sales and extended shopping hours. The impact of strike action on this day will be significant.

These workers are walking out bravely. Because they’re walking out without the support of a Union or any strike fund. But you can show your support for these Walmart workers who are taking a stand to demand respect at work by participating in the ‘sponsor a striker’ campaign through the OUR Walmart group @ http://www.wepay.com/donations/108462.
