Target Stores anti-unionization video propaganda
Just like WalMart, Target Stores, boasts of being union-free. In a remarkable employee orientation (brainwashing) video, the corporation tells new hires that they will “lose” their voice if a union comes between them and benevolent, open-door (sic), caring management. The final instruction in the video: “Refuse to sign – keep Target union-free.” Guess we know on whose back the corporate bullseye is stuck – union organizers and employees believing they deserve dignity at work.
Gawker.com (the source of the video) reports that the actors in the film are both union members.
Steve Greenhouse, New York Times labor writer, reported on the organizing efforts on May 23.
