San Bernadino, CA:
Walmart can afford the best-paid public relations team, but spin doesn’t make a difference when it’s immediately contradicted by a leaked document.More below the Solidarity Squiggle
Warehouse workers have raised serious concerns about broken equipment and high injury rates in the warehouse where we work moving Walmart merchandise. But when we’ve asked for working equipment, we have been retaliated against.
Walmart spokesperson Dan Fogelman said “workers' claims were ‘either unfounded, or if they are legitimate, have been addressed.’” (Los Angeles Times, Sep. 17)
But first, please DONATE:
But a management document from inside the warehouse tells a different story. A worker found a company checklist with Walmart’s logo on it that shows a lot of equipment is broken and even dangerous. The document is dated Aug. 8, but workers report that problems noted in the document still have not been fixed. (You can view the document here.)You can also read the entire email here:http://us2.campaign-archive1.com/...
Send an Email (http://takeaction.walmartwatch.org/... ) to Walmart and NFI, the warehouse operator, and tell them they have been caught red handed.
This document proves Walmart and NFI know what the problems are, yet none of these serious hazards have been addressed.
Last week we delivered more than 120,000 signatures – including yours – to Walmart in five cities. The next day, warehouse worker Javier Rodriguez cornered Walmart executive Rajan Kamalanathan, who heads the company's ethical outsourcing initiative, at a private event in Washington, D.C. In Illinois workers at a Walmart distribution center joined us on strike to end retaliation.
Walmart is feeling the heat and it knows there are problems. Help warehouse workers by sending Walmart and its contractor, NFI, an email today!!! (http://takeaction.walmartwatch.org/...)
Please ACT NOW, this small effort on our part means so much to Warehouse Workers.
Their strike continues.
