    Southern California Warehouse Workers On Strike

    RIVERSIDE, Calif. – Warehouse workers went on strike to protest unfair labor practices they have faced on the job Wednesday morning, following months of working in hot temperatures under extreme pressure in a major Walmart-contracted warehouse in Southern California.

    Workers—who do not have a recognized union—walked off the job during the first shift at an NFI warehouse in Mira Loma, California to call for an end to retaliation and unfair labor practices. Workers have been fighting for more than a year for safe working conditions and for Walmart to take responsibility for conditions in the warehouse.

    Default Re: Zero hour looms for controversial California warehousing bill

    I truly admire what these workers are doing. They have no union but are coming together to try and change poor treatment and bad working conditions.
    About 30 workers walked out of the large warehouse where they were employed in Mira Loma, Calif., and about half of them have committed to marching the full six days, Elizabeth Brennan, a spokeswoman for Warehouse Workers United, told The Huffington Post. Joining them on the march are workers from other Southern California warehouses who either have days off or have been injured on the job.

    About 50 workers each day are marching the route taken by the trucks that carry the goods they load -- from Riverside, Calif., to Downtown Los Angeles. Sleeping each night along the way on church floors and relying on supporters for meals (see photos below), the marchers will deliver a letter outlining the alleged abuses they have suffered.

    Warehouse Workers Strike In Illinois On Heels Of California Walkout

    A strike among warehouse workers in Southern California has spread to northeastern Illinois, where a group of workers at a distribution center for Walmart goods walked off the job over the weekend.

    The walkout by roughly 30 employees of a labor agency in Elwood, Ill., near Joliet, mirrors another strike, begun last week, by another group of 30 warehouse workers in Mira Loma, Calif. Both the Illinois and California facilities handle products headed to Walmart stores throughout the country, although none of the workers in question are directly employed by the retail giant.

    Default Walmart Strike: Over 70 LA Workers Walk Off The Job

    These Walmart workers are getting wise and vocal! Good for them!
    For the first time in Walmart's 50-year history, workers at multiple stores have gone on strike, even though their jobs are not protected by a labor union.
    On the same day as the strike, about 80 foreign Walmart workers gathered in downtown LA to launch the UNI Walmart Global Union Alliance, Schlademan said. While Walmart in the U.S. remains free of labor unions, the retailer's workers elsewhere in the world are largely unionized.

    Walmart Warehouse Strikers to Return to Work with Full Back Pay

    In an historic victory, all striking Roadlink workers at Walmart’s Elwood warehouse have won their principal demand for an end to illegal retaliation against workers protesting poor conditions. They will return to work with their full pay while they were out on strike. Workers will return to work and continue the fight for safe working conditions, fair pay for all hours worked and an end to discrimination.
