In Support Of Walmart Workers' Right To Unionize


Resolution 14-07.21


WHEREAS, Walmart is the largest retail employer in the United States, which promotes a business model of largely part-time, low-wage jobs without health insurance, benefits or career advancement; and

WHEREAS, Walmart workers from across the country recently walked off the job to take their grievances to the annual Walmart shareholders' meeting on June 7, 2013 in Fayetteville, Arkansas; and

WHEREAS, a May 2007 Human Rights Watch report found that Walmart stands out in the sheer size and magnitude of its aggressive anti-union tactics and apparatus, aimed at opposing its workers from unionizing, a January 2013 National Labor Board memo cited that eighty charges were recently filed against Walmart for attempting to prevent its workers from organizing; and workers returned from strike under fear of retaliation, and said Walmart workers returned to their jobs on June 10, 2013, under fear of management retaliation;

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the California Democratic Party stands with labor, and with Walmart workers' right to unionize free of retaliation.
