Walmart Walkout threatens Black Friday 2012 for the Retailer

We reported about Black Friday strike threats of Walmart employees a couple weeks ago. Now Making Change at Walmart announced a 1000-store protest that started this week. The press-release mentions specifically Black Friday to make sure the message becomes clear. The massive strikes would also affect the Walmart Black Friday 2012 sales events.

According to the announcement this afternoon, Walmart workers from cities across the country announced that these strikes are the first of 1000 protests, including more strikes, rallies and online actions, at Walmart stores leading up to and on Black Friday.  Workers announced upcoming strikes and protests in Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Miami, Milwaukee, Washington DC, as well as workers walking off the job in Oklahoma, Mississippi, Louisiana and Minnesota.  

The biggest issue that Walmart workers raise are the schedules and that Walmart keeps people from working full-time. The announcement makes allegations that Walmart tries to silence workers who speak up.

So this can become a real mess for Walmart. Besides lost business it can also become an huge image problem for the retailer. We will see how the will resolve that on the eve of Black Friday 2012.

I have not seen a public response from Walmart yet on these new developments.
