UFCW Statement Regarding Wal-Mart Whistleblower

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE April 27, 2005
Please contact: Paul Blank 202-466-1503

Statement by Bill McDonough, Executive Vice President, UFCW

Wal-Mart demonstrated its true colors with its firing of Jared Bowen who blew the whistle on the company’s “union project.” That Mr. Bowen has asked the U.S. Attorney for protection as a federal whistleblower demonstrates the fear Wal-Mart instills in employees who use what the company calls the "Open Door" policy-and employees call the "Out the Door" policy. Treating workers fairly and with respect is not a choice-it’s the right thing to do.


Time after time, on issues of child labor, gender equality, protecting a workers’ democratic right to organize, and now, defending a worker’s right to report wrongdoing, Wal-Mart has chosen the wrong path. It’s time for Wal-Mart to wake up and do the right thing.
