Walmart agent poses as reporter to spy on union



June 1, at the celebrity-studded Walmart annual stockholders' meeting, heir Rob Walton said, "Acting with integrity is not a negotiable part of this business."

Alas, the business is not a person, despite what the Supreme Court might think. Humans do strange things.

From Gawker on a union organizing effort targeting Walmart in Los Angeles:

And now, one labor group says that an employee of a PR firm working for Wal-Mart actually posed as a reporter in order to infiltrate one of their meetings.

The union has film.

Walmart tells Gawker the action was "unacceptable, misleading and wrong. Our culture of integrity is a constant at Walmart and by not properly identifying herself, this individual's behavior was contrary to our values ..." The employee is gone from the PR firm. A "junior member" who made an "immature decision," says the firm.
