NLRB Complaint: Walmart Illegally Retaliated Against Striking Workers

Feds previously brought up complaint in November but said they tried to settle with the company


Walmart illegally fired, disciplined or threatened more than 60 employees in 14 states for participating in protests and strikes against the company, federal officials charged in a formal complaint filed on Wednesday.

The National Labor Relations Board says Walmart violated the rights of employees participating in legally protected activities to complain about wages and working conditions at the nation's largest retailer.
