Wal-Mart: labor charges dismissed.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. said a judge in Las Vegas has dismissed all charges in a complaint of unfair labor practices filed against the retailer in February 2003.

Wal-Mart said the complaint was based on charges filed by the United Food and Commercial Workers union. It included allegations of unlawful interrogation, threatening associates and denial of witnesses in connection with the firing of an employee.

"We are pleased that (Administrative Law Judge Clifford) Anderson ruled in our favor," said Terry Srsen, vice president of labor relations for Wal-Mart. "Wal-Mart is committed to taking care of its associates, and these allegations go against everything this company stands for."

Also, Blimpie International of Atlanta, which operates Blimpie restaurants, said it has leased space in 100 Wal-Mart stores throughout the country for its new Blimpie Xpress restaurants.

The restaurants feature a selection of subs, salads and wraps. Blimpie Xpress will also serve breakfast.
