On Friday, Wal-Mart Stores Inc sued current and former Wal-Mart employees who are backed by the union claiming that these defendants violated Florida law by protesting and rallying at Wal-mart’s Florida stores, thereby committing trespass. According to Yahoo News, Wal-Mart has “asked the court for a legal ruling that would prevent future trespassing.” Defendants include the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union (UFCW) and the Organization United for Respect at Walmart (OUR Walmart).
Wal-Mart has sued the defendants in an effort to stop these unruly rallies. According to a Wal-Mart spokesman, the lawsuits aim is "to help protect our customers and associates from further disruptive tactics associated with their continued, illegal trespassing."
However, the protesters feel that Wal-Mart is infringing on their freedom of speech. They feel that Wal-Mart should focus their energies on creating better jobs for their workers instead of wasting their time suing them for trespass. Their aim was to push Wal-Mart to provide better pay and improved working conditions for their employees.
