USA: Wal-Mart customers are winners in National Labor Relations board ruling
Wal-Mart customers are the winners in a Feb. 28 ruling handed down by the Fort Worth regional office of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) concerning Wal-Mart's case-ready beef program. In an effort to stop Wal-Mart from offering its case-ready program, the highest quality meat product available to customers today, the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) last year filed a charge against the retailer, calling the program unlawful and claiming the move was made by Wal-Mart to stop the union's organizing efforts. The NLRB this week dismissed the charge, concluding, after a thorough investigation, that "no violation of the (National Labor Relations) Act could be found concerning the case-ready beef program."
