Ethisphere: Remove Target Corp. from World's Most Ethical Companies List 2012

To be delivered to Alex Brigham, Founder, Ethisphere Institute

Petition Statement

The U.S. Federal Government found that Target Corp. violated the rights of its workers numerous times in Valley Stream, New York, failing to comply with federal labor laws! Remove Target from your annual list of World's Most Ethical Companies.
There are currently 220 signatures. NEW goal - We need 300 signatures!

Petition Background

As a former Target worker I was a victim of Target Corp.'s ethics every day. My coworkers and I are shocked and disgusted to find them on Ethisphere's annual "World's Most Ethical Companies" list.

In 2011 United States federal government charged Target Corp. for violating our rights and an Administrative Law Judge found that the company used intimidation, scare tactics and threats in order to keep us (the workers) from joining a union in Valley Stream N.Y.

After the vote, Target closed the store for a convenient "remodeling", displacing us, over 250 employees. Target is far from one of the world's most ethical companies, they're not even the most ethical company in Valley Stream N.Y.. While I was working there I was harassed every day by managers because I stood up for my rights and my coworkers rights.

With the United States Government finding Target violated its workers civil rights, how does Ethisphere still include Target on their annual list of World's Top Ethical Companies? Sign the petition and tell Ethisphere to remove Target from their annual list!
