Judge Orders Walmart: Rehire 16 Workers It Fired For Striking

By Dave Jamieson for Huffington Post. Walmart broke the law when it fired 16 workers who went on strike in 2013, a judge ruled on Thursday, January 21st. The judge ordered Walmart to offer the workers their jobs back within two weeks and make them whole for any lost wages. Walmart has the right to appeal the ruling, and a company spokesman told The Huffington Post that the retailer still believes it acted lawfully and will "pursue all of our options." In a lengthy decision, Geoffrey Carter, an administrative law judge for the National Labor Relations Board, ruled that the strikes were protected by law, and that Walmart had no right to discipline workers for taking part in them. Carter also ordered Walmart to expunge any disciplinary infractions against those employees, and to read a notice in the stores where they worked informing employees of their rights under the law.

We need to change the American consciousness.

On January 26th, I was terminated by Kelly Cooper, the manager for Walmart store #1772 in Klamath Falls, Oregon, in what I believe was retaliation for my efforts to speak out for a better workplace. I worked at Walmart for 11 years and didn’t have problems until I started getting involved along with other employees across the country in campaigns for better wages, better benefits and other improvements at Walmart.
