Walmart Warehouse Workers’ Strike Spreads to IL!
On Saturday, Sept. 15, Walmart warehouse workers in Elwood, IL, organizing with FCWA member Warehouse Workers for Justice, went on strike! They join Walmart warehouse workers in Southern California who are also on strike!
It’s been a long road fighting for safer working conditions, fair wages and respect. The warehouse workers had had enough of the retaliation against them for speaking out. They went on strike to make a change for their families and their communities.
The warehouse workers need your support now more than ever. Please sign their petition to Walmart CEO Michael Duke.
For those of you in the Chicago area, we'd like to invite you to join the warehouse workers on the strike line at 26453 Center Point Drive, Elwood, IL. Please also consider donating to their strike fund.
