Triangle Jobs with Justice Organizing Committee is calling for an action at Walmart on “Black Friday” (November 23) as part of a national day of action in support of Walmart workers, many of whom are will be walking off the job in protest of the egregious labor practices of the company. We will be targeting the Walmart at the New Hope Commons shopping center in Durham (5450 New Hope Commons Dr., near exit 270 (15-501) off of I-40). The action will begin at 11:00 a.m. Please also note that there is a letter attached (that will be delivered to management) that we are encouraging organizations to sign. Please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if your organization is able to endorse the action. This will be one among many throughout the country as communities tell the giant retailer that we won’t stand for their labor practices anymore! Walmart is notorious for low wages, discrimination, unaffordable benefits, and retaliation against union supporters. They are even denying their employees a day off for Thanksgiving to spend time with their families. Instead, they are demanding that employees work at 8:00 p.m. on the holiday evening so that the company can make even larger profits. As a community we must show that we support the workers, so please come out and join us if you can!
