I'm organizing an action at my local Wal-mart in Catonsville. You should join us.

Hi everyone,

I'm organizing an action at my local Wal-Mart here in Catonsville (Route 40 & Rolling Road). It starts at 8 pm Thanksgiving evening. The purpose of the action is to end the retaliation of Wal-Mart workers who speak out on the job and to improve their working conditions. Many of us are opposed to Wal-Mart as an organization--and these worker-led actions are one important step to getting the company to change its act. So if you can join me, please do so. More information here.

I sort of thought this whole endeavor was tilting at windmills--until Wal-Mart filed an Unfair Labor Practice against the United Food and Commercial Workers Union for these Wal-Mart actions. Obviously, the movement of wildcat strikes has the Walton heirs worried.

If you can come, please RSVP to this link.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
