Join the Ride 4 Respect to Home Office
As members and supporters of OUR Walmart we stand up for each other. When coworkers are unfairly fired we stand up for fair treatment. When coworkers can’t pay their bills or feed their families, we stand up for better wages and scheduling. And when Walmart retaliates against us for challenging them to do better, we stand up for our rights.
When we stand up together we win. After standing together on Black Friday, Walmart announced they would try to do better on scheduling and hours for us. But we know we have to push and hold Walmart accountable if we expect better scheduling, more dependable hours and better staffing in our stores.
Associates from around the country recently came together in Birmingham Alabama. There we shared stories on the kind of Walmart we want to work for. And there, inspired by Birmingham’s Civil Rights history, we decided it was time to once again stand up around the country and show Walmart we deserve better.
The first week of June is Walmart’s shareholder meetings in Bentonville Arkansas. Every single Walmart executive and Board of Directors member will be there and all eyes will be on Walmart. We’ve decided this week is the best opportunity to get Walmart’s attention and demand better pay, treatment, and an end to retaliation against associates that speak out. Together we can show Walmart and their Board of Directors we deserve better.
STAND WITH WALMART WORKERS DEMANDING CHANGE
Walmart workers have been standing up and fighting for fair wages and working conditions. In response, Walmart retaliated against and attempted to silence them. On top of that, Walmart launched a $3 million ad campaign to cover up the truth about the "real Walmart." Really, Walmart?
Now Walmart workers are taking their message, and their stories of the real Walmart, directly to Walmart's headquarters for the annual shareholders' meeting on June 7th to show that they won't be silenced.Say you're with them, and we’ll make sure your voice is heard at Walmart Headquarters when we deliver the petitions!
Workers from all over the Detroit area are on strike.
Our employers – thriving corporations like McDonald’s, Burger King, KFC, Dollar Tree, Little Caesar’s, Domino’s, Long John Silver’s and others – are making billions, but pay us poverty wages and violate our right to join together to make a better future for ourselves and our families. Most of us make just $7.40 or a little more an hour! And that’s just not enough to support our families, or to get basic needs like food, health care, rent and transportation, without relying on public assistance.
STAND WITH ROSE CAMPBELL & WALMART WORKERS DEMANDING CHANGE
While Walmart CEO Mike Duke rakes in record pay -- more than 1,000 times what an average Walmart associate makes -- he’s refusing to honor Walmart’s commitments to its workers. They’re standing up and demanding that Walmart improve labor standards with actions in stores across the country. Sign the petition saying you have their backs, and we’ll make sure your voice is heard in Walmart Headquarters when we deliver the petitions to the annual meeting in June.
Open Letter to Walmart BOD Member Aida Alvarez
My name is Venanzi Luna and I am a member of OUR Walmart. This week, I took a day off work as an Associate at Walmart to attend a Gala of the Latino Community Foundation (LCF) in San Francisco. I was planning to attend the Gala with other OUR Walmart members, as well as with Sumi Abedin, a survivor of the tragic fire last year at a Bangladesh factory that produced clothing for Walmart. 112 workers died in the fire. At the Gala, we were hoping to be able to speak with Aida Alvarez. Ms. Alvarez is a member of the Walmart Board of Directors and also the Board Chair of the LCF.
Yesterday, just two days before the event, we received word from the LCF that our tickets had been cancelled. We received no explanation. I am losing money by taking a day off and paying for my travel to the event. Unfortunately, this is just another example of Ms. Alvarez avoiding listening to the concerns of Walmart store and supply chain workers. I hope that you will join me in calling on Ms. Alvarez to end her silence, to meet with workers to hear their issues and to begin to play a leadership role at Walmart to encourage the company to change course.
We Stand With Fast Food Workers. Do You?
Fast Food Forward: Higher Pay For A Stronger New York!
Fast food workers in New York City barely make enough to get by. Many of us make minimum wage — just $7.25 an hour, or as little as $11,000 a year. Meanwhile, the Goliath corporations we work for, like McDonalds, Wendy’s, Taco Bell, KFC, and Pizza Hut, are part of a $200 billion industry. These corporations reap huge profits and shower CEOs with exorbitant compensation while many of their employees qualify for food stamps.
Fast food workers are parents building a better future for our kids, seniors who can’t afford retirement, hardworking young people dreaming of college, faithful members of your congregation, and your community-minded neighbors. We are New Yorkers.
We’re united in the fight for a higher wage, so we can afford the food, clothing, and housing our families need and deserve. Boosting pay for our jobs will allow us to put more money into the economy. Join us.
