Last week, Making Change at Walmart and OUR Walmart members celebrated when Walmart announced two major policy shifts as a result of their campaigns. One will allow workers to get more hours when they want them, another will ensure that pregnant women are given some basic accommodations that will help them keep their jobs and provide for their families. Both of these victories prove that change is possible at Walmart.
To help amplify these victories, template communication materials are available online. These materials will help define the story that these policy changes are the result of workers and community supporters calling for change at the major retailer.
The materials can be found at http://bit.ly/WMCommMat and include sample op-eds, letters to the editor, and talking points locals can use for media engagement. The templates are written so that locals can easily input their information.
