OUR Walmart Members “Ride for Respect”
In protest of Walmart’s illegal efforts to silence the growing calls for a change of course at the country’s largest company, Walmart associates walked off the job in California’s Bay Area, Massachusetts, and Miami, while their co-workers in towns and cities across the country are pledging to do the same.
Over the next few days, the “Ride for Respect” will stop in nearly 30
cities, before arriving in Bentonville on Saturday. Across the country UFCW locals are supporting the OUR Walmart strikers on their historic journey. From handling logistics and hosting rallies to supplying strikers with supplies and sponsoring dinners, UFCW Local unions and active members are showing their solidarity with the strikers.
On Tuesday, May 28th OUR Walmart strikers stopped by UFCW Local 5 office in San Jose and spoke with the local’s Executive Board on their ‘Ride for Respect’. These brave leaders thanked UFCW5 for all of their support and asked for our continued support. They know Walmart can do better and they deserve just that.
