Keep an eye on this story from 9News.com, because the repurcussions could be felt nationwide. Wal-Mart workers reportedly rejected a plan today to form a union at the Longmont Wal-Mart Tire-and-Lube Express, by a vote of 17-1.
The results seem a little odd, and the local branch of UFCW plans to challenge the election. Why would they even bother to go to a vote if nobody wanted it to begin with?
What ultimately happens here could effect how Wal-Mart operates nationwide, and a unionized workforce of the largest employer in the U.S. would certainly benefit Democrats in future elections.
