NEW YORK Wal-Mart workers who were allegedly fired for protesting for better pay could soon get their jobs back.
On Monday, a federal agency said it is ready to bring a case against Wal-Mart (WMT, Fortune 500)for allegedly retaliating against workers who staged Black Friday protests last year.
The National Labor Relations Board, which protects the rights of workers who organize for better working conditions, said Wal-Mart illegally threatened “reprisal” against workers who protested on November 22, 2012. The agency also said Wal-Mart stores in more than a dozen states “unlawfully threatened, disciplined, and/or terminated employees” who participated in legal strikes and protests.
