The Making Change @ Walmart Campaign wins this year’s BENNY for taking on the largest corporation with some of the worst labor practices in America. The campaign is anchored by the United Food & Commercial Workers (UFCW) union with key support from Jobs with Justice, Interfaith Workers Alliance, Color of Change, Action Network, AFL-CIO, American Federation of Teachers, National Organization for Women and dozens of other federal, state, and local groups. Against tall odds, the campaign has been winning access to more hours for workers and most recently won accommodations for pregnant female employees so they can continue to work and contribute to the support of their families.

Making Change at Walmart is honored to have been selected to receive the 2014 BENNY Award. We are truly inspired by the hard work of the other nominees and flattered to be listed among them. All that our coalition has accomplished would never have been possible without the profound bravery and resolve of the Walmart workers who continue to fearlessly stand up to one of the most powerful corporations and families in the world. As long as they continue to speak out for what is right, we will do our best to support them and strengthen our communities by holding Walmart and the Waltons accountable. We thank the BENNY awards for recognizing all those who work to make companies more socially and environmentally responsible.
