No protesters at local Wal-Mart stores

Updated:

BOARDMAN TOWNSHIP, Ohio - Local union members planned to protest outside Wal-Mart stores Friday morning in support of the retailer's employees, but the pickets did not materialize.

Unions, including the local United Auto Workers, announced earlier this week that they would stand behind workers who were not happy about Thanksgiving and Black Friday store hours.

Store workers and union supporters say they're also unhappy with low wages, short hours and benefits.

Demonstrations were planned at Wal-Mart stores at several locations around the country.
