Walmart Files Charges Against UFCW Union

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 store’s 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.

According to Reuters, the National Labor Relations Act “prohibits such picketing for more than 30 days without the filing of a representation petition” and “requires the NLRB to seek a federal court injunction against such activity.”
