• Disney, Starbucks and NBCUniversal: pay the workers making your clothes!
    Starbucks, Disney and NBCUniversal have a responsibility to ensure workers’ rights are respected in their supply chains. They must ensure we receive all the money we are owed for making their products, and their profits. The Mae Sot region of Thailand is known to be 'a black hole' in the Thai garment industry, where labour rights violations are common place, and factories routinely take advantage of visa dependent migrant workers. If we win, this can set an important precedent for the future – that brands can’t just walk away, proving the power of collective worker action and global solidarity to ensure justice, even in the darkest corners of the garment industry.

  • Keep Parkside Safe
    After moving to online instruction to slow the spread of COVID-19 in March 2020, UW-Parkside returned to offering in-person classes in the fall semester. With over eight million known cases and two hundred thousand deaths in the United States, the situation is dire, especially in Wisconsin, which is currently a major hot spot for the virus. While the university took steps to ensure that this reopening would be safe, these steps have fallen short in a number of areas. As a result, the university is not doing all that it should to protect faculty, staff, and students from the pandemic. We are therefore asking Chancellor Ford and Provost Ducoffe to take further action to ensure that Parkside is operating with the maximum possible level of safety in the current health environment.

  • Home Chef overworking, underpaying, and discriminating
    Employees working in this company are being overlooked, discriminated, underpaid and overworked to the point where individuals get unhealthy. Employees no longer feel valued & get wrongfully terminated. Not a safe work environment.

  • Minimum Wage for TCF Food Runners/Bussers
    This is an issue worth fighting for. Although servers take turns food running, it is not worth our time to make server wage and then a small 1% of the servers' sales during these shifts. Food runners are being pulled to help run to-gos. Food runners and bussers are running around the entire shift and are what makes a shift run smoothly. We aren't fighting for a raise or promotion, just minimum wage because we work hard and deserve that. Other restaurants do it.

  • Hazard pay for Nurses and CNAs
    Nurses and CNAs are being put in a dangerous position, being exposed to Covid19. Corporate can afford to give office workers hazard pay but not the actual nurses and CNAs being exposed.

  • Give Sex Workers a Voice on OnlyFans!
    Since the Covid-19 pandemic, many sex workers have relied heavily on OnlyFans to make a living, and in so doing, have helped to accelerate the growth of the platform and increase the profits of the company overall. In response to this surge in growth and some of the complications that have come with it, the platform has introduced new policies that have hurt these workers’ ability to make the money they need to survive, thus compromising their quality of life. The recent decision to lower the amount of money creators can receive via tips and pay-to-view messages has resulted in lost income for many. OnlyFans has also failed to address existing issues, such as the discrimination its creators face on other platforms, which limits their ability to self-promote. While sex workers do not account for the whole of OnlyFans’ creator base, they constitute a significant presence on the platform and notably played a meaningful role in launching the platform into the public consciousness. Unfortunately, due to societal stigma, they are also a uniquely vulnerable population--and this stigma is further compounded for BIPOC and trans workers, who are disproportionately impacted by policies that hinder their ability to work. We believe that as long as OnlyFans continues to profit off the labor of these creators, the company also has a responsibility to protect them and to craft its policies in ways that do not disproportionately penalize, censor, or otherwise interfere with their ability to work and survive.

  • Raise Starbucks Pay to $15 an Hour
    As the largest coffee chain in the world, Starbucks should treat employees above average -- especially since the company is known for taking care of employees. We are a branded coffee name yet employees pay are comparable to coffee houses a fraction of the size of Starbucks. Starbucks is a multibillion dollar company, but it's been reported that it pays an effective tax rate of zero, yet is still unable to pay livable wages to its employees. We have been continually working throughout the pandemic, but the pay is not a livable wage starting at $12 an hour. During the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been many new rules/regulations and restraints implemented. We have new work every day, but we're not seeing a return for that work. At my location, for example, we have a great crew, but morale is starting to go down with many employees feeling as if their work is unappreciated. With the morales of employees going down, we are seeing a direct correlation to our customer connection score (the happiness of our customers). Customers are feeling less like they have a 3rd place, and more like they are just getting rushed thru with less smiles because there is so much more going on behind the bar. Employees deserve to feel they can handle their bills and what ever else they need while working full time at any job, but especially a company as large and profitable as Starbucks.

  • Hazard Pay for Essential Parks Workers
    Our goal is equitable pay for frontline workers. Our fellow crew members are now unshakably aware that NYC Parks will refuse to do what's right if we remain quiet. Let’s not forget We didn’t get masks until three months into the pandemic. Or sanitizer. And we were furloughed for a mandatory week. We must speak up. We are ending this campaign at 20,000 signatures to stand as a reminder for parkies that we are here and we will not back down. We are ending this campaign at 20,000 signatures to remind NYC Parks that we have broad public support and worker solidarity on our side – and we're only just getting started. Solidarity forever.

  • Associate Rights on the job.
    It’s important to have the same standard for everyone that has been there and is coming to join. Manager should be held respectful and reasonable when it come to learn new thing and coming in as a new manager. And if we the people can’t voice our opinions where is our rights. How can you be a good leader with out being a good follower. We work harder than most don’t get nothing but a 35 min break one 20 min and one 15 min it’s not fair that jobs doing way less hour Nd less work get more hour to eat than we do. We sign up for day shift ,night shift ,or weekend day or night but we have to come in every weekend and we don’t get time an a half, holiday pay ,weekend ,or night shift pay. We feel our jobs is being threatened Because if we don’t come in on our day off that’s 2 points or more. We done went through every step we needed to help with the concerns we the associate have.

  • NYC Early Childhood Educators Deserve Fair Compensation and Severance
    Bright Horizons promised to respond to worker demands by September 30th but they have not done so. We must hold them accountable. We were recently informed that the Fedkids center at 26 Federal Plaza in Lower Manhattan will no longer be operated by Bright Horizons. On the company call that was held two weeks ago, Bright Horizons representatives did not let us ask questions or even speak in the meeting. It was brief and insulting to the many teachers who dedicated years to the company and left us with more questions than ever before. Many of us have been employees of Bright Horizons for years, some upwards of a decade. We have spent the past several months furloughed and awaiting communication but continuing to stay in touch with children and their families via Zoom, only to discover that in a matter of a couple of weeks we need to decide whether we are continuing with Bright Horizons or seeking employment at our own center. We are expected to make this decision with very little information and no guarantee of employment if we choose to stay with Bright Horizons or join with the new company at Federal Plaza.

  • Cheesecake Factory: Allen deserves his job back
    We spend more time in the restaurant than we do in our own homes with our families and we love and take pride in what we do. For a lot of us restaurant workers, this is a profession, a career and a way of life that can not only support our families, but also pays our bills and maintains quality of life. We understand that the restaurant industry can be difficult, stressful and exhausting, but we look to our managers for guidance when that happens. A manager should protect and respect the staff, follow the guidelines and hold themselves to the same standards. A manager should never yell at a worker in front of guests and other staff members for any reason. As employees, it is our RIGHT under the National Labor Relations Act to speak out at the workplace with our co-workers. It is against federal labor law for an employer to retaliate for voicing workplace concerns. We deserve a fair trial. This is our opportunity to change the restaurant culture not only within The Cheesecake Factory but to also set a higher standard for restaurants across the country. By signing this petition to support Allen, he will have the opportunity to stay safe, support his family and put food back on the table. We ask for your support by signing this petition, sharing this with friends and joining our fight for what is right!

  • Hazard Pay for Planet Fitness Employees!!
    Per Planet Fitness policy, face masks have to be worn at all time covering mouth and nose while in our gyms. This is done to ensure the safety of our members and staff. As employees we have to address this policy if we see someone not properly wearing a mask while walking around the gym. That is not easy to do when we are being yelled at, thrown slurs, and called all kinds of horrible names in the process. Employees are the ones who have to clean up after members who come to the gym, we sanitize our clubs to ensure it is safe enough for our members to work out, we clean the restrooms, throw away hazardous trash and come into contact with all kinds of people throughout our shifts. All of these interactions put us in danger of coming into contact with respiratory droplets that could be infected with COVID-19. Many of us do not get paid a livable wage, we do not get paid enough to pay for healthcare and to afford medical costs if we were to contract this virus, many of us have health conditions that put us at a higher risk of dying from this virus. It is not fair that we risk our livelihood everyday to make sure members can come to a clean sanitized gym and release respiratory droplets because they didn't want to wear a mask and still not be compensated. All we get is a letter explaining how "thankful" and "grateful" our higher ups are for having us work and keeping our clubs clean. You can thank us by giving us hazard pay for exposing ourselves in the middle of a pandemic! Many people do not follow the policy and have given myself and my co-workers at Grand Prairie a hard time for enforcing this policy. We are just trying to do our jobs! Unfortunately, we do not have the luxury of waiting out this virus at home. We have to work to make ends meet even if that means risking our lives. As working class people we do not have a choice. But that does not mean we should have to put up with being verbally harassed and having our mental health be affected. The least Planet Fitness can do is pay us to work under these kinds of conditions. Our safety and health matters just as much as the members who come into our gyms. We do all of this for your members and for your company, you owe it to us Chris Rondaeu (CEO) , Bobbi Brant (Vice President of Human Resources), and Jeff Helfgott (COO) ! Give us the Hazard pay we should have gotten months ago. We deserve a livable wage. Sincerely, Marisol A.
