business news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Washington Post reports that the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) says that it is holding numerous organizing meetings at various Walmart stores this week, which it claims is a response to requests from store employees.

"They see their company actually being a rare success story in this tight economy, and they rightfully are asking where do they fit in to all that," UFCW Local 400 spokesman Mark Federici tells the Post.

The organization efforts also come as Walmart holds its annual shareholders meeting in Bentonville, Arkansas, this week.
