Wal-Mart death preventable, union says
'This incident was avoidable,' said Bruce Both, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union Local 1500, the state of New York's largest grocery worker's union.
'Where were the safety barriers? Where was security? How did store management not see dangerous numbers of customers barreling down on the store in such an unsafe manner?
'This is not just tragic; it rises to a level of blatant irresponsibility by Wal-Mart,' he said.
