Wake-Up Wal-Mart

Companies: Wal-Mart

In April of 2005, the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) International Union launched the Wake-Up Wal-Mart campaign, criticizing Wal-Mart for inadequate wages and health care, discrimination and failing to meet fair labor standards. Wake-Up Wal-Mart calls for consumer pledges against shopping Wal-Mart, appeals to state legislators for “Fair Share for Health Care,” legislative action designed to protect taxpayers from the medicare burden of Wal-Mart’s workforce, and to act locally against Wal-Mart stores by organizing community members and local media.
