Hundreds of Argentina Walmart Employees Went on Strike in Solidarity with US Co-Workers

At The Nation:

About 1,000 Walmart workers in Argentina staged brief strikes last Friday, a union official told The Nation this week.

Rubén Cortina, the president of the Americas division of the global union federation UNI, said workers struck in close to ten regions of Argentina, and “almost half of the stores had some type of strike during the day.” He said those strikes generally lasted between one and three hours, as workers walked off the job to hold demonstrations inside or outside their store during part of their scheduled shift, then returned to work.
