Alabama Stores Target in Wal-Mart Black Friday Strike

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama stores are among the locations being targeted in a Black Friday strike by Wal-Mart workers.
AL.com reports the planned strike includes 55 Wal-Mart and Sam's Club stores in Alabama. A website set up by organizers includes stores in Birmingham, Huntsville, Mobile, Montgomery and others.
Only the Wal-Mart in the Birmingham suburb of Pelham has a strike leader name and lists a time when the walk-out will begin.
The protest is being planned by the Organization United for Respect at Wal-Mart, a subset of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union.
Wal-Mart employees across the country have complained about the stores opening at 8 a.m. on Thanksgiving day.
Federal labor officials Monday said they're trying to decide whether to support the company's request to intervene.
