Join Local 1189 in Walmart Leafletting

Making Change at Walmart’s national “Are You With Us?” tour will include rallies at Walmart stores and other retail locations in cities in all 50 states across the country in the coming weeks. The kick-off is in Quincy, Mass., on Wednesday, Dec. 2. The tour and campaign are meant to showcase and highlight the negative impact that the country’s largest employer has on all American retail workers, which includes paying employees poverty-level wages, cutting hours and schedules to force workers into part-time jobs and salaries, and insufficient benefit offers.  The “Are You With Us?” grassroots initiative is part of the MCAW 5-week holiday campaign that is seeking to mobilize hard-working Walmart workers and Americans to help change Walmart into a responsible employer. The initiative will include targeted rallies and actions at hundreds of different Walmart stores. The targeted national ad campaign, which includes current and former Walmart workers, will air in over two dozen states.On December 11th UFCW 1189 will leaflet area Walmart stores.
