Here’s how you can support Walmart workers on Black Friday

Here’s how you can support Walmart workers on Black Friday

fb Post a comment supporting striking workers on Walmart’s Facebook Page
  • I support striking Walmart workers, and I won't be setting foot in one of your stores until you agree to stop intimidating your employees and improve working condition
  • Walmart should be ashamed of the way it treats its workers. This strike is only the beginning - if you don't start respecting your workers, your customers will hold you accountable!
  • Walmart workers are sick of poverty wages, awful working conditions, and intimidation, and I'm sick of giving my money to corporate bullies. I won't be shopping at a Walmart today or any other day!
twitter Help get the hashtag #WalmartStrikers trending on Twitter
Click here to tweet (we’ve got a pre-written tweet all ready for you that you can modify!) at Walmart about improving working conditions: "Listen up, @Walmart, #WalmartStrikers won't be bullied anymore. Stop intimidation now!"
store Call your local Walmart and talk to a manager about your concerns
Click here to go to Walmart’s store locator. Search for a store near you, call that store, an ask to speak to a manager. When you talk to a manager, tell them that:
  • You're aware of the strikes happening at Walmarts around the country today.
  • You've heard that Walmart workers have been subject to poverty wages and dangerous working conditions, and that when they speak out, they've been inimidated by management.
  • You support striking workers and that you won't shop at a Walmart until Walmart stops intimidation and starts respecting its employees.
phone OR, call Walmart’s labor relations hotline at 1-877-545-2267
Press 1 to speak to a live representative or press 2 to leave a message -- do whichever you prefer.

The Huffington Post found this number in some leaked memos from Walmart. Managers are supposed to call this number to report strikes or other labor trouble in their stores. Let’s help them! Call and tell them:
I've discovered a labor relations problem: Walmart workers have had enough of poverty wages, dangerous conditions, and intimidation by the bosses, and the strikes will continue until Walmart respects its workers.
