Walmart files complaint over Black Friday strike threat
November 19, 2012 (WPVI) -- Walmart is taking pre-emptive action against workers who are threatening to stage a walkout on Black Friday.
The retail giant has filed a complaint with a federal agency.
Walmart accuses the United Food and Commercial Workers Union of unlawfully organizing picket lines.

Cities including Chicago, Dallas, Miami, Milwaukee and Los Angeles could see walkouts by Walmart employees as early as Monday.
