WalMarch Dispatch: Day 1
Today, warehouse workers went on strike against their employers, NFI and Warestaff, to protest the unfair labor practices they have faced on the job.
Workers—who do not have a recognized union—walked off the job to call for an end to retaliation and unfair labor practices. Workers have been fighting for more than a year for safe working conditions and for Walmart to take responsibility for conditions in the warehouse.
Voices From the March
“I’m supporting the Warehouse workers on strike because bad working conditions affect our economy. If we let these warehouses get away with it, every employer is gonna think! It’s ok.”
