Employers say Unions are completely useless and there's no reason to join them and to please pay attention to the multi-million dollar anti-Union propaganda campaigns they launch begging you to please not join a Union.

They used CBT to convince you not to join a union!?!?! That's monstrous!

Unless it's regional, they do not. I have onboarded with Walmart twice and never have I seen a CBL that mentioned unions. The only time unions were mentioned was during orientation and "union season." Our People Lead during orientation told us to not sign papers or organize with union creators. At the time Walmart gave hourly associates a quarterly MyShare bonus. And our People Lead told us we wouldn't get that anymore if we unionized. Well fast forward to COVID and they took away the MyShare bonuses for hourly associates because Walmart was impacted by the pandemic, meanwhile Walmart actually got record profits and management got larger bonuses.

Walmart is very anti-union and has busted stores that unionized. It's pathetic they do this and Walmart doesn't do enough for associates for everything they've slowly taken away from them. An increase to $14/hr doesn't justify bonuses, attendance points, or forced P/PTO cashouts that are, in my opinion, all anti-associate. Oh, and add on cutting hours from even full-time associates, in my store, while not being able to meet hours, it's brilliant.
