“Today’s decision proves beyond doubt that Walmart unlawfully fired, threatened, and disciplined hard-working employees simply for speaking out,” said Jess Levin, communications director for MCAW. “Not only is this a huge victory for those workers and Walmart workers everywhere who continue to stand up for better working conditions, but it sends a message to Walmart that its workers cannot be silenced. We will continue to fight to change Walmart for the better.”
The ruling states:
- Walmart must offer 16 former employees full reinstatement to their former jobs.
- Walmart must give those 16 former employees back pay.
- Walmart must hold a meeting in 29 stores to inform employees of their right to strike and vow not to threaten or discipline employees for striking.
