Unitarian Universalist Association Treasurer and Vice President of Finance Tim Brennan notes that "The resolution [filed with WalMart]
received support from 6% of the shareholders. As a great American once
said, "Mission accomplished." While this is a smaller percentage than I had hoped (Verizon was
17%), it is not insignificant and more than double the amount necessary to allow
us to re-file next year. This will allow us to continue to stay engaged
with the company and continue our dialogue. Our intention is to go to the proxy
advisory services next year to lobby them for their support. This year
they recommended against the resolutions."
