Corporate Responsibility

When a corporation becomes so powerful that it greatly influences the American economy, it’s important to ensure they don’t abuse the financial power they wield.  But all too often, that power is abused, and employees of giant corporations suffer the consequences.

  • UFCW-supported campaigns like Making Change at Walmart and OUR Walmart are designed to not attack these companies, but ensure they are responsible and treat their workers fairly rather than driving down standards across the industry.
  • Work with allies in Congress to make sure current accountability standards remain in place and are enforced.
