November 2015

  • Fri. 27

     RSVP on Facebook       

    This November, Walmart workers across the country are leading the #Fastfor15, fifteen days of action and fasting at Walton homes, Board of Directors homes and Walmart stores, and culminating in a national day of action on Black Friday. Together with supporters, we are shining light on the hunger crisis facing workers and their families each day and renewing the call for $15 per hour and full-time work.

    On November 27, join OUR Walmart faster, Denise Barlage, to send a message to Walmart and the Waltons that we willl not stop until we get $15 and Full Time. We’ll bring our protest straight to Alice Walton’s doorstep.

    Please join us!

    Hate working on Thanksgiving or Black Friday? Think retail workers deserve better? Join us on 11/27 to traveling between major retailers on a Black Friday Tour of Shame! We’ll be demonstrating that retail workers are taking a stand against the racism, homophobia, and abusive practices rampant in the industry.


    On Black Friday while eager shoppers scramble to get their hands on the best holiday deals, workers and community allies will be outside Verizon Wireless stores taking action against Verizon’s greed.

    Join us on Black Friday to send Verizon and its customers a message: Verizon must stop trying to destroy good jobs and settle fair contracts.

    As Verizon and Verizon Wireless workers and their families up and down the East Coast enter the holiday season still working without a contract and fearing for their futures, the company is still trying to cut retirement and job security, raise health care costs by thousands of dollars per worker, and even take away benefits from employees who have been injured on the job.

    The company is also out to terrify and silence Verizon Wireless workers who exercise their rights on the job. In fact, The National Labor Relations Board just slapped Verizon with a complaint for illegally firing union activist Bianca Cunningham.*

    The company can afford to maintain good jobs, and we’re holding them accountable. Verizon and their customers NEED to hear from you.
