Workers Embark on a Four County Tour of Southern California
Warehouse workers started the morning early with a picket line in front of the Olivet International warehouse in Mira Loma, California. (Read the news coverage from Day 1.) Olivet is a Walmart contractor and 70 percent of the merchandise moved in the warehouse is sold in Walmart. Thirty warehouse workers walked off the job at the warehouse July 24.

Then it was on to Orange County to Walmart’s California headquarters in Irvine. Striking workers were prepared to deliver a letter to Walmart documenting their concerns and asking why Walmart hasn’t responded to an ethics complaint made May 28. Unfortunately, company officials would not open the door.
Meanwhile in New York City
A group of supporters in New York City visited the Olivet offices to deliver a message supporting striking warehouse workers.
The group demanded Olivet stop illegally retaliating against workers and allow the strikers to return to work.
