wonderful to have adult education more represented in the journal as well.

STORE WORKERS SAY: WHOSE WALMART? OUR WALMART!

By Jenny Brown, Labor Notes

Fear is the main thing stopping retail workers from organizing for better treatment at Walmart, said several employees who are doing just that.

They lost their fear, they said, after they stood up for themselves against tyrannical managers and after they joined 100 co-workers from stores across the country to march on Walmart headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas, in June.

ABOUT CSEW (CENTRE FOR THE STUDY OF EDUCATION & WORK, OISE/UT):

Head: Peter Sawchuk
Co-ordinator: D’Arcy Martin

The Centre for the Study of Education and Work (CSEW) brings together educators from university, union, and community settings to understand and enrich the often-undervalued informal and formal learning of working people. We develop research and teaching programs at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (UofT) that strengthen feminist, anti-racist, labour movement, and working-class perspectives on learning and work.

Our major project is APCOL: Anti-Poverty Community Organizing and Learning. This five-year project (2009-2013), funded by SSHRC-CURA, brings academics and activists together in a collaborative effort to evaluate how organizations approach issues and campaigns and use popular education. For more information about this project, visit http://www.apcol.ca.
