2002: Dubuque Wal-Mart Workers Efforts to Organize

From The Free Library

May 8, 2002

In Dubuque, Iowa, the NRLB charges that Wal-Mart illegally bribed workers in the Tire & Lube Express Department in order to suppress union support. At the first sign of union activity at the Dubuque Supercenter, Wal-Mart flooded the store with union-busting executives to profile the associates and identify their issues. Wal-Mart’s campaign to suppress the union support involved passing off benefits as illegal payoffs to workers. Key union supporters’ hours were manipulated to keep them away from other workers.
