WalMart Files Complaint With NLRB to Stop Black Friday Protests

Today is Black Friday, typically one of the busiest shopping days of the year.  One organization is determined to make the day difficult for Walmart.

A group  called OUR Walmart is planning demonstrations outside the company’s stores, protesting alleged mistreatment of workers by the company.

WalMart has fired back, filing a complaint with the National Labor Relations Board to stop the protests.  The basis for its complaint: The organization is violating section 8(b)(7)(C) of the law, which bars picketing for more than 30 days when a union is seeking recognition. .

As this blog went to press, it was unclear whether the NLRB would have the time or even the intention to rule on the complaint prior to the planned protests.
