Reuters reports that the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) will hear a complaint from the United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) that Walmart "violated federal law by barring employees who went on strike from having coworkers present at disciplinary meetings, potentially paving the way for a decision expanding the rights of nonunion workers." It is, the story says, just the latest chapter in a long-running fight between the retailer and organized labor over unionization and employment practices.
