UPDATE; Wal-Mart Workers Testify in Colorado.

Wal-Mart, using it's anti-union tactics and violating federal law, are having to listen to what thier workers have to say in front of the NLRB (National Labor Relations Board).
Wal-Mart doesn't want these employees represented separately but, feel they should be represented with the other employees of the store.
So, between tire and oil changes, the mechanics are going to have to fill thier off time by stocking groceries or hanging up frilly clothing? I don't think so...nice try Wal-Mart but, no points.

Wal-Mart countering Noble effort?

When union agitator Joshua Noble returned to work at the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Loveland on Sunday, he said two assistant store managers gave him a written reprimand.

The charge: horseplay. The managers accused Noble of locking one of his colleagues in an employee bathroom as some sort of gag - something he says never happened.

Then Monday, another manager warned him to get rid of the hat he has been wearing for the past six months - the one with the beer company logo embossed on the front.

Noble, 21, is an auto technician. He's trying to get the United Food and Commercial Workers to represent a handful of people who work in the Tire & Lube Express at the back of the store. More>>>
