Justin Sullivan/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Dozens of Wal-Mart workers in 12 cities plan to walk off the job to protest the store’s working conditions, and some are headed to Bentonville, Ark., where the company will hold its shareholder meeting Wednesday.

The workers want to be able to unionize, which they say is the only way they will have their demands met.

A Wal-Mart spokesperson says that all 4,000 stores in the U.S. are staffed, open and seeing no impact.

Walmart has 1.4 million employees in the United States.
