    Walmart Threatened Workers For Trying To Organize, Judge Rules

    (Reuters) - An administrative law judge found Walmart threatened employees trying to organize workers at two stores in California, in a victory for workers' rights groups challenging labor practices at the retail giant.

    The ruling issued on Tuesday stems from complaints raised by workers at Walmart stores in Placerville and Richmond, California, arguing they were unfairly disciplined for trying to organize employees.

    Geoffrey Carter, National Labor Relations Board Administrative law judge in Washington, D.C., told the company to stop applying pressure on employees to discourage work stoppages, adding the Richmond, California, Walmart managers told workers they would"shoot the union" and said that employees returning from a strike "would be looking for new jobs."

    The judge also ordered the company to change its dress code for California employees that restricted employees' ability to wear union shirts.

    Walmart, based in Bentonville, Arkansas, could appeal Carter's decision, but company spokesman Kory Lundberg would only say that Walmart was still evaluating its next steps.

    Walmart getting called out on their oppressive labor practices. First judge decision since OUR Walmart was formed. I suspect more decision like this one to come not in Walmart's favor but in favor of the employees.

    Walmart should close those stores and leave town...

    As an employer I retain the authority to dictate employee attire during work periods.

    Walmarts policy, and the law is not to retaliate against organized workers. Taking an isolated incident and broad brushing an entire company classic smear campaign

    Who is OUR Walmart? | Our Walmart FactCheck.com – Dispelling union myths.

    They pay people minimum wage to protest. My IRONY meter just broke.

    So if the law is not to retaliate, shouldn't they be held responsible for breaking the law? Even if it's one store manager, shouldn't he face consequences for breaking the law?
