In January of this year, the state of California ordered Quetico, LLC, a Walmart-contracted warehouse, to pay $1.1 million in stolen wages to its workers. The company denied the charges and is appealing the state’s ruling. Meanwhile, workers fear retaliation for speaking out. Warehouse Workers United has started a campaign urging Walmart to enforce its own “Standards for Suppliers” and to ensure workers are included in the process of maintaining acceptable working conditions at Walmart suppliers.
Send a letter to Walmart CEO Mike Duke and tell him you stand with Warehouse Workers United and the Quetico warehouse workers.
