Recently, Occupy Wall Street released some interesting Walmart management training slides regarding unions–and how to skirt the law in gently nudging workers away from organizing. However, some of those slides were missing. Now, the missing slides have been released as well to paint a full picture into how much the idea of a union scares the living hell out of the corporate giant.
Walmart claims to be pro-worker, but given that management is required to monitor and report union activity, those claims seem overstated at best (especially given Walmart’s recent encounter with accusations of some pretty awful labor violations). The company whose underpaid employees felt it necessary to hold a canned food drive for other employees over the holidays discussed in the slides “legal” methods of anti-union intimidation and scare tactics.
You might notice some blank spots in those slides. Well, OWS was nice enough to fill in the missing blanks with some shining examples of how to dissuade employees from taking interest in unionizing.
