Walmart illegally fired, disciplined or threatened more than 60 employees in 14 states for participating in protests and strikes against the company, federal officials charged in a formal complaint filed on Wednesday.
The National Labor Relations Board says Walmart violated the rights of employees participating in legally protected activities to complain about wages and working conditions at the nation’s largest retailer.
The labor board’s general counsel first laid out similar charges in November, but held off on filing a complaint while trying to work out a settlement with Walmart. Those discussions were not successful, government officials said in a statement.
