Teamsters Kick Off ‘IKEA Hurts Families’ Campaign

(WASHINGTON) –– Today, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters launched the ‘IKEA Hurts Families’ campaign that highlights how far IKEA’s Richmond, British Columbia, Canada store has departed from the original values of the Swedish company. IKEA has locked out 350 workers at its Richmond store without pay for more than six months because the workers voted down a contract proposal with a discriminatory two-tiered wage system.

On the heels of increasing strike activity against Walmart this month, workers worldwide are gearing up for Black Friday protests with a global week of action against Walmart. The international actions are backed by the UNI Global Union to demand respect and good jobs throughout Walmart’s supply chain.
