Labor groups on Thursday said they’ll end most of their demonstrations and picketing against Wal-Mart Stores Inc., as well as refrain from pressuring the retail giant’s employees to choose the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union as a representative, as part of a settlement that was reached with the National Labor Relations Board.
The settlement agreement stems from a Nov. 16 unfair labor practice charge filed by Wal-Mart against the UFCW. At the height of the Christmas shopping season and culminating on one of its busiest days, Black Friday, Wal-Mart asked the NLRB to stop demonstrations and in-store “flash mobs” that the retailer called “unlawful attempts to disrupt its business and intimidate customers and store workers.”
