Walmart Rally for Respect Sept. 5

382U-OURWalmart_logo

Americans believe in speaking up when something’s wrong — and the freedom to act together to make things right.

But when Walmart workers came together to protest Walmart’s attempts to silence workers who spoke out for change, Walmart responded by firing and disciplining more than 60 workers.

It’s wrong for Walmart, America’s biggest company, to punish workers for exercising our legally protected rights.

For more than a month, we’ve asked the members of Walmart’s Board of Directors to tell Walmart to reinstate the fired workers and remove the disciplinary actions, but they have remained silent. Now we need to prove to Walmart that its behavior won’t be tolerated.

Join us the week of Labor Day as we take things up a notch and call on Walmart to reinstate and remove disciplinary actions from the Walmart 60!

What: Rally for Respect!

When: Thursday, September 5, 2013 at 4pm

Where: Heritage Green Park 610 W. Adams St. Chicago, IL
