• Starbucks Food Waste
    Making these changes would help cut down on food waste costs and labor costs across the company. And would ensure each store had a consistent and inviting pastry case display.

  • Bus Driver 77
    This is important to us as Katy Langford is a great bus driver who has always cared about the safety and well-being of our children. Our children loved riding Mrs Katy’s bus and I never had to worry! She has great communication skills and would regularly send updates with information regarding bus times, changes, or activities. Katy took pride in her job and she did it very well!

  • Zoom Denver - We Need Bicycle Accommodations!
    If you're like me, you are immensely proud of Zoom's mission to not only lead the charge on workplace happiness, but also to set a new standard for the impact we have on the community around us. This is evident in programs like our maternity/paternity benefits, in our grassroots nonprofit projects like Erin Kehoe's PB&J sandwich drive, and in our partnership with the Ronald McDonald House. Not to mention the incredible crew that makes it all happen (Thank you Emily Crane and Melissa Dorsch!). I am also just as proud of Denver's heart for being leaders in similar initiatives, like Denver's Housing First Program which has received $11 million from the city in the last 2 years and has an 89% retention rate among homeless recipients, to $447 million for 35 school construction projects across Colorado for 2018-2019. Zooms culture in Denver is the perfect storm, and we are constantly working towards setting new standards in responsible and forward-thinking community impact. One of the initiatives which Zoom has leaned into more recently is one around emissions/waste/environmental. From metal straws, to recycled plates and utensils, to public transportation benefits, Zoom has made a point of encouraging employees to reduce their environmental impact. Even our platform has massive benefit for customers via reduction in travel, which translates into unbelievable emissions savings (1 roundtrip flight from SF to London = 1 Ton of CO2). Where we currently lag far behind, especially in the Denver office of all places, is Bicycle accommodations. Bicycles are considered the most efficient form of transportation, and are widely accepted and accommodated for in the Tech industry, especially in Colorado. We know it may be an uphill battle with our building, but it is truly a small ask considering its impact, especially in the city where this is the standard.

  • Demand the FMCSA take immediate action on Sexual Misconduct in Truck Driver Training Fleets
    On July 23, 2019 the FMCSA posted a request for comments to study what they called a “serious pattern of harassment and assault related crimes against female and minority male truckers.”. For over a decade, harassment and sexual assault in entry-level driver training programs has been well-documented and grossly overlooked by the trucking industry and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), the regulatory agency that is tasked with overseeing safety in the trucking industry. We need a plan of action to address this pattern of abuse and bring about meaningful change NOW! The FMCSA has ignored widely available public information and extensive reporting on rampant sexual assault and rape long-endemic to the trucking industry. The FMCSA should immediately place carriers where sexual assault and rape continue to occur on probation—and disallow repeat offenders from recruitment to their driver training programs until they clean up their act. Without a meaningful and urgent implementation plan, the FMCSA’s request for comments is without teeth—a simple stalling technique and a free pass for the trucking industry. My name is Desiree Wood and I am the President and Founder of REAL Women in Trucking, Inc. (RWIT), a 501 (c) (6) organization. I am also a truck driver myself that experienced sexual misconduct and several potentially violent situations during my truck driver training from 2007-2008 at Covenant Transport, based in Chattanooga, Tennessee. As a student truck driver, I was badgered to discuss sex with a co-driver and I also experienced intimidation, culminating in a violent altercation in which bleach was sprayed at my face. During this altercation, my wrist was badly injured while I tried to send an SOS message to the company over the Qualcomm, the only communication device available to me to seek assistance from my company. My co-driver forcefully yanked from my arms to prevent me from calling for help. I was left behind in New Mexico for several days, a place where I knew no one, while my violent co-driver that had sprayed me with bleach was permitted to continue driving the tractor-trailer. He was highly intoxicated after consuming five Long Island Ice teas and was permitted to operate the commercial motor vehicle on Interstate 40 while I was left behind. When I reported the incident to the Human Resources department at Covenant Transport, they told me they would investigate—but they never did. Even though the incident was likely captured by security cameras and I had filed a police report—the company instead turned their attention to me as a troublemaker. I formed REAL Women in Trucking, Inc. (RWIT) with other lady truck drivers as a protest movement and in a response to the ENABLERS IN THE TRUCKING INDUSTRY AND THE ABSENCE OF AUTHENTIC REPRESENTATION FOR WOMEN WHO WORK AS TRUCK DRIVERS. Our mission is to deliver highway safety through leadership, mentorship, education and advocacy. RWIT has formed into a growing community of women truck drivers that offers support to new truck drivers and we demand change in the trucking industry. RWIT is known as the “go to” organization when it comes to sexual assault and harassment in truck driver training; we offer support and resources to women entering the industry when they otherwise would have nowhere to turn, but it’s not enough. Over the past decade, I’ve personally received weekly distress calls and email from hundreds of women across the country who have had similar or worse experiences during their driver training. In just the past two years, distress calls to our organization have INCREASED at an alarming rate. SEPERATING GENDERS IS NOT THE ANSWER TO THIS PROBLEM SINCE WOMEN HAVE REPORTED BEING ASSAULTED BY WOMEN BOTH PHYSICALLY AND SEXUALLY! The solution to this issue begins with removing rapists and harassers from truck driver training fleets along with the enablers that allow them to thrive. The FMCSA is directly responsible for overseeing entry-level truck driver training programs and they have blatantly ignored this issue long enough. No more paper tiger advisory committees and comment collections that deliver nothing and end up appointing known industry enablers to oversee the issues in these training fleets. Please sign this petition from the REAL Women in Trucking to call on the FMCSA to take immediate action.

  • Walmart associates deserve to feel safe coming to work
    The mass shooting in El Paso, Texas was an act of white supremacy and domestic terrorism. Walmart associates returned to work afraid, angry, devastated, and confused. We don’t feel safe in our stores. We support gun control and universal background checks to get weapons of war out of the hands of white supremacists, but let’s be clear that mass shootings are the symptom of a society built on xenophobia, toxic masculinity, patriarchy, and white supremacy. We’re calling for: 1) Walmart to reject the racism & bigotry that’s the root cause of these hate crimes 2) Walmart to change their policy to disallow open carry in all stores and provide clear signs at all entryways of this change 3) Walmart to stop the sale of guns in all stores We can’t wait any longer. We deserve to feel safe and free of violence in our stores. If you are experiencing emotional distress related to incidents of mass violence, call 1-800-985-5990 or text TalkWithUs to 66746 to connect with a trained crisis counselor.

  • Lowe’s employees deserve severance
    My name is Patricia Wilkerson and I worked at Lowe’s in Dayton, TX for over 15 years. I’m left without a job and without severance pay It has been very difficult not being given a permanent job and having been laid off twice from Lowe’s. I have had to work for cash as a design assistant and personal driver off and on to scrape by and even my grown children have had to help me . As a result, I'm behind on my mortgage and could lose my home. Lowe’s CEO Marvin Ellison has shut down stores across the country and fired thousands of employees in order to increase profits for top executives. This isn’t right. Ellison needs to take responsibility for destroying our jobs and offer support for struggling families like mine who have been serving this company for years. This is the same corporate greed that is hurting hundreds of thousands of working people and our families at other retailers – and it needs to end. We call on Lowe’s to pay severance to store employees whose jobs he destroyed. For every year worked, we call for a week’s worth of pay. We further call on him to take steps to protect the jobs that remain at Lowe’s, so that our former coworkers have more assurance that their lives won't be thrown into chaos, as mine has been. Thanks for standing with us. By signing up, you are agreeing to receive updates from United for Respect. You can unsubscribe or update your preferences at any time. Message and data rates may apply.

  • Allow Beards for Super 1 Employees!!!
    As long as the beard looks neat, clean and professional-looking, has defined chin and neck lines, doesn't exceed 2 inches in length, and people working in food preparation areas wear beard guards, there really is no reason why employees at Super 1 shouldn’t be able to have beards.

  • Bring Back Cordell to Dorchester's front desk!
    Cordell Walker has been working the front desk at the Dorchester House for over 5 years. Last month, he was unceremoniously removed from his post at the Dorchester, effective immediately, with a thin, unsubstantiated justification. We are asking that he be reinstated immediately. Anyone who has walked by the Dorchester's front desk during Cordell's shift --typically 11pm-3pm on weekends-- is likely familiar with his warm and reassuring presence. Often, one or more residents is standing at the desk chatting with Cordell, staying longer than they need to pick up their package or readjust from the outside weather, and doing so because he is there. He is warm, funny, dedicated and professional to the residents and to his colleagues, often training new employees and/or picking up other shifts despite working difficult overnight hours. To many of us, he has become a, if not the, face of the Dorchester House, one that makes this place feel like a community and a home and who exemplifies why we would choose to live in this building. We, the residents, appreciate all the contributions Cordell has made to our community and urge his employer to do the same. We want Cordell back at the Dorchester!

  • Ventilated Hoods For EVERYONE
    Many of our coworkers are becoming ill, overheating, and spending their time off with headaches due to the non-ventilated hoods. I have seen my co-workers continuously feeling faint/dizzy, having panic attacks, sweating profusely, and even vomiting. I’ve seen people have to leave the clean room for air because the unvented hoods are completely unbearable for the overwhelming majority of us. People are quitting their jobs over this. Those of us that are pregnant, susceptible to migraines, susceptible to vertigo, currently battling illness, etc. are at even more risk due to the implementation of non-ventilated hoods. Those of us who have no pre-existing conditions are experiencing symptoms of heat exhaustion as well. This is only day 3! What are the long term effects of working like this? What research has been done on the safety of working in these types of hoods? No one in our leadership has been able to answer these questions. It is up to us to tell them what is safe and healthy for us! We need ventilated hoods for ALL clean-room workers, starting right now! This issue is not just a matter of us being inconvenienced or slightly uncomfortable, we believe this is a human rights violation and a violation of our OSHA rights. Help me let our policy-writers know that we are NOT okay with this!

  • Stop Starbucks UK from Wasting Food
    In my store we throw out about 30 items of food at the end of the day but UK staff are not allowed to take some home without buying it and we are banned from giving it away to homeless shelters etc. In the US, Starbucks has implemented a 'Food Share' program that distributes leftover meals to food banks but what about the hundreds of Starbucks stores in the UK?

  • Amazon Management: Meet with DCH1 Amazonians United now!

We need access to healthcare. And an "Excessive Heat Watch" is in effect this week, and the only step Amazon management has taken to combat heat exhaustion is to give us popsicles. We need real solutions. We need Dominic to meet with us now.
