The United Food and Commercial Workers International Union Seeks to Force Wal-Mart to Rehire Workers Amid Store Closings

The United Food and Commercial Workers International Union filed the charge with the National Labor Relations Board arguing the closings were retaliation for labour activism. Wal-Mart says it closed the stores to fix plumbing issues. One affected store, in Pico Rivera, California, has been a hotbed for worker protests against Wal-Mart. It was the first store to wage such protests, in October 2012. The other stores are in Midland and Livingston, Texas; Tulsa, Oklahoma; and Brandon, Florida. The food and commercial workers union made its filing on behalf of OUR Wal-Mart, a group of Wal-Mart employees that it backs that has pushed for better pay and working conditions. Wal-Mart announced that it does not believe there is any basis for an injunction. The stores will remain shuttered for up to six months. The company has said that the workers would be put on paid leave for two months and it would look to transfer some to nearby stores. The worker group wants the labour board to seek a court injunction, which can be quicker than typical NLRB proceedings.
