End the Corruption and the Cover-up

My name is Venanzi Luna and I’ve been working at Walmart for eight years.  On the heels of the alleged bribery scandal involving top Walmart executives accused of buying off Mexican public officials and then covering it up, I launched a petition calling on the company to investigate what happened and for CEO Mike Duke to resign in the wake of poor management and oversight.

A year later, Walmart has done nothing to address these problems.  In fact, things have gotten worse.  

Store associates like me and warehouse workers have faced illegal threats for speaking out about problems at the stores and warehouses.  Workers in Bangladesh tragically lost their lives at a factory that supplies clothing to Walmart stores.  All the while Walmart has still not gotten to the bottom of the bribery scandal which violated both U.S. and international laws.

The time has come for a change of leadership at Walmart.  The current leadership and management is failing its workers, customers, investors and the vision of Walmart’s founder.

That is why I am renewing my call for CEO Mike Duke to resign and a change at the top of company management immediately.  The reckless leadership of this company jeopardizes the lives and livelihood of its employees and countless others.  And as someone who wants this company to do well and to do better by its employees and customers the time to act is now.

Please stand with me in calling for the resignation of Walmart CEO Mike Duke and change of course at Walmart.

UFCW and OUR Walmart have the purpose of helping Wal-Mart employees as individuals or groups in their dealings with Wal-Mart over labor rights and standards and their efforts to have Wal-Mart publically commit to adhering to labor rights and standards. UFCW and OUR Walmart have no intent to have Walmart recognize or bargain with UFCW or OUR Walmart as the representative of Walmart employees.

      I am sick of supporting Walmart Workers. Pay your people fair wages and give them health benefits. I boycott this chain at all costs. I would rather pay full price elsewhere then to be seen in Walmart.

      This is a basic human rights issue, not just a labour issue. Employees should have the right to be paid fairly for the work they do, to be treated with respect and for basic health and pension benefits. I would never shop at a Walmart store after seeing the documentary "Walmart: the high cost of low prices"
