In the 1970s, Gene Lantz was a member of the Trotskyist Socialist Workers Party, but eventually led his faction out of the party over doctrinal differences.

In July, 2013, Walmart sued Gene Lantz, the United Food and Commercial Workers, OURWalmart and Jobs with Justice for civil trespassing for crossing their parking lots.

Gene Lantz has been making videos of public officials supporting Walmart workers and posting them on YouTube, which he regards as a key tactic in the long strategy to unionize Walmart.
