No One Should get Fired for Stubbing A Toe

No One Should get Fired for Stubbing A Toe

We want Walmart 2642 to give Gabe his job back.

Why is this important?

Apple Valley, MN OUR Walmart member, Gabe Teneyuque was instrumental in getting the state's minimum wage passed. Gabe spoke at the State Capitol, collected and delivered petitions and marched to end poverty wages in Minnesota. His courage to speak out and improve lives of Minnesotans across the state should be encouraged. Instead, Walmart fired Gabe for stubbing his toe at work and reporting the injury. Walmart managers claim that Gabe violated Walmart policy by not reporting the injury that same day even thought it didn't start hurting Gabe til days later. No one should be afraid to report a work related injury. Walmart do the right thing and give Gabe his job back.

LEGAL DISCLAIMER: OUR Walmart's purpose is to help Walmart employees as individuals or groups in their dealings with Walmart over labor rights and standards and their efforts to have Walmart publicly commit to adhering to labor rights and standards. OUR Walmart has no intent to have Walmart recognize or bargain with it as the representative of Walmart employees.


Reasons for signing

  • to help my friend out on here and hoping that wal-mart will change their mind about what they did, by someone stubbing their toe
  • legitimate injustice, some medical problems do not present themselves immediately
  • I signed, because Walmart changes their policies constantly, we are "at will" associates and they shouldn't fire us for standing up for our rights under the law
