Global Day of Action: All over the world, workers are rising up against Walmart!

Walmart Global Day of Action

Workers and their unions in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, India, South Africa, the United Kingdom, Uruguay, Zambia and the United States are fighting back by joining together to demand change at Walmart. The UNI Walmart Global Union Alliance is committed to building a strong network among its members to fight for fairness, decent working conditions, and a voice for all Walmart workers. Global protests call for an end to retaliation against US Walmart worker activists. They will also include a moment of silence for the 112 workers who died in the November 24 fire at a factory that produced Walmart apparel in Bangladesh.

Learn more by visiting UNIGlobalAlliance@Walmart where you can find pictures and videos from actions worldwide or the Global Day of Solidarity website.

This is just the beginning. Interfaith Workers Justice has issued a call for solidarity actions and vigils on December 22 focused on rights for supply chain workers and support for victims of the recent Tazreen fire. Click here for organizing info, materials, and to sign up.
