"Slam the Door" Rally on BJ's and Wal-Mart Announced

The UFCW, along with Small Business Groups, Members of the Clergy and other Community Organizations concerned with responsible development in New York City are gathering Monday January 23rd at Noon on the steps of New York City Hall. The rally is being held to bring attention to the upcoming vote for the approval of the new Bronx Gateway Mall. The mall is not identifying the potential tenants [Wal-Mart, BJ’s Wholesale Club] which is allowing them to escape scrutinity of their labor and business practices, and providing BJ’s and Wal-Mart with a ‘backdoor’ into the Bronx.
