Quick action pledged in Wal-Mart labor case

WASHINGTON — The National Labor Relations Board said Monday that it will decide quickly whether to support a request by Wal-Mart Stores Inc. to stop a union-backed group from encouraging walk-outs at hundreds of stores Friday, the traditional start of the holiday shopping season.

The world's largest retailer, based in Bentonville, Ark., filed an unfair labor practice charge with the board Friday against the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union. It said that the demonstrations organized by union-backed OUR Walmart threaten to disrupt its business and intimidate customers and other associates. OUR Walmart, formed in 2010, is made up of current and former Wal-Mart employees.
