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.
Meantime, Wal-mart workers at 1,000 locations say they are angry that the company plans to open stores at 8:00 p.m. on Thanksgiving night.
Cities including Chicago, Dallas, Miami, Milwaukee and Los Angeles could see walkouts by Walmart employees as early as Monday.
