• FedEx Employee Acknowledgement and Consideration
    We as employees are often asked to work extended hours outside our regular part-time time frames. Many of us took these part-time positions to be able to make a living and still have necessary time outside of work. That necessary home time might include caring for our children or other family members, working other jobs, or going to school, etc.. If any one of our shifts are compromised we are All subject to such treatment and unreasonable expectation. I implore you, please consider signing this provision of expected employee standard.

  • Tell Banana Republic to stop discriminating against disabled and Elderly employees
    The inclusion of workers is a paramount issue in todays society, and for such a large retailer to set such a bad example of ableism and ageism is damaging to society as a whole. This situation is made even more relevant because of the ongoing pandemic and the inability for senior citizens to find work during this time because of health concerns. Here is an article by CNBC that goes over this issue : https://www.cnbc.com/2020/10/30/older-americans-are-struggling-with-unemployment-amid-the-covid-crisis.html.

  • DoorDash: Publicly Commit to Paying Dashers a Living Wage
    As a dasher, you pay for your own gas, upkeep on your vehicles, and you are not paid for time spent waiting for a pickup. The CEOs of the companies you work for are mega-rich, but you are not afforded basic benefits such as health care or paid time off. And while prices have increased for customers through vague service fees to cover substandard benefits, much of that money will never make it into the hands of workers. Under the new law in California, delivery workers of DoorDash will receive almost half of the IRS rate for mileage, only .30/mile. No matter where you come from, the color of your skin, or the work that you do, a job should help you pay the bills and leave you time with your family. In exchange for your time and effort, you should earn the pay and benefits that provide for a good living and a bright future. Working via an app and setting your own hours shouldn’t mean making pennies and having no safety net if you get sick or injured. It doesn’t have to be this way. A company worth almost $3 billion is able to pay you a living wage - they are just choosing not to. DoorDash drivers deserve better pay. Sign if you agree.

  • 7901's Petition for Change
    Sharon has caused multiple amazing employees to lose all motivation do their job, or to even show up for their job. The employees dread coming into work because they know the unfair situations in which we must work in. Sharon condones rude selfish behavior with her favoritism towards a single employee who refuses to follow our standards or even learn her duties to the fullest extent. Sharon let's her do anything she pleases, including treating the other staff like they are below her, doing the bare minimum and less of her duties, taking breaks and leaving whenever she wishes, spending most of her shifts on the phone, and then retaliates against the honest hardworking employees that speak up against the unfairness. She has caused our store to suffer and our guests to become disgruntled by the constant disruptions in our workplace. After months of asking for fair change, Sharon has done nothing but turn a blind eye to Jennifer's disturbances to the crew and retaliation against those who complain. Sharon is constantly mocking and spewing out profane and racial slurs against our customers, employees and anyone else who dares to speak against her personal views inside and even outside of the store. She is highly unprofessional and not fit to run a staff if she refuses to change her ways and drop the ongoing discrimination as well as exposing contagious employees to work shifts that she could easily fill with a healthy employee.

  • Guy Fieri: Put an End to discrimination at LIVE Casino, Westmoreland County
    SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE! Although Black workers at Guy Fieri’s Kitchen & Bar Westmoreland have more professional experience, they are being paid LOWER WAGES than their white counterparts. This was brought to light following a recent racially charged incident, where a restaurant manager openly used the word “N****R” in front of several employees, while ordering a worker to turn off the music. Nate Ridley, a Black worker who was present when the racist remark was made, formally filed a complaint with LIVE! Casino’s HR department after the incident and put in his two weeks notice. It is unacceptable that the job he was once excited about had allowed such discrimination and disrespect to happen. The HR department did not immediately respond to Ridley’s grievance and he was expected to continue to work alongside the manager who made the racial slur. Ridley then connected with ROC-PA, which led to the discovery of the pay disparity between Black and white workers. When management was asked about the pay discrepancy, workers were told not to discuss wages with others. After ROC first circulated this petition, the LIVE! Casino’s HR department finally responded, saying that they would “look into the situation.” The management advised workers to “be careful signing petitions.” To date, Ridley has yet to receive an apology from the upper management of Guy’s Kitchen & Bar. We believe that everyone has the right to a workplace free of discrimination and harassment. As employees, we demand accountability, action and fair wages!

  • Justice for George Mason University Campus Workers
    Our tax and tuition dollars are driving poverty for immigrant workers at George Mason University. The university should pay people a decent wage and have high standards for all contractors. Their janitorial staff are forced to come to work after being exposed to COVID, they are shorted on hours and intimidated. On construction projects, the contractors use labor brokers that violate labor laws. We want GMU to adopt a strong responsible contractor policy. We want the new Virginia Square campus in Arlington to be built by union workers who have more job protections, and have apprenticeship opportunities for people in our community.

  • Employee Petition - Revocation - Spring Break 2021
    This has been an incredibly difficult year for all of us. We, the teachers, are so incredibly grateful to be in a career field where, in these unsteady times, work will almost always be available to us. We are also blessed to play such an influential role in the lives of our students. The winter storm that tore through many of our homes, not even a year after the chaos that has been COVID-19, has been devastating to many of our staff. Our physical and mental health has taken a beating, and we desperately need respite. A week without heat in a winter storm is not that. A week of our homes incurring damage is not that. A week without the ability to take a shower and flush the toilet, having to wait outside grocery stores in freezing temperatures, only to be turned away, is not that. Spring Break 2021 is necessary in order to be of adequate mental health to provide our students with what they need. It is necessary to care for ourselves in order to be able to best care for one another as well. In addition, many staff members have already invested financially in plans for Spring Break 2021. Most of these plans involve spending time with family members we haven’t seen since COVID-19 began. With the newly established vaccines, many of are just now able to safely reunite with our loved ones and properly pay our respects to those we’ve lost. To deprive your hard-working staff of this much needed time off is to create unhealthy work conditions—at best. Lastly, you will find that our community of parents and neighbors are in full support of this petition, indicated by their signatures alongside ours. We hope that our petition will be heard and considered thoughtfully. Thank you.

  • Tell Whole Foods' billionaire bosses to protect their employees and customers
    Whole Foods can afford to do better. The grocery store chain and its parent company, Amazon, are raking in profits during the pandemic. To slow the spread of the virus among Whole Foods employees and customers, CEO John Mackey needs to immediately institute a permanent comprehensive paid leave policy. That includes guaranteed paid sick time, paid family and medical leave, and paid time off to be vaccinated. Join us and Whole Foods employees in calling on Whole Foods to live up to their virtues by giving their employees the opportunity to put their wellness and their families first now and in the future.

  • We Demand Restoration of Break Time!
    Almost exactly a year ago, we saw corporations calling grocery workers “heroes” — what a difference a year makes! A new company-wide policy on team member meal and rest periods which went into effect on February 8th has shortened our breaks from 15 minutes to 10. The policy change has affected different regions in different ways. Many stores offered two paid 15 minute breaks per shift - under the new policy, all they get is 10. Some stores offered workers a paid 30 minute lunch break - under the new policy, that break will no longer be paid. Whole Foods claims that they are doing this to “streamline regional processes and policies.” In reality, they are bringing every store in America down to the bare minimum. This policy was designed to offer us as little break time and as little pay as the law will permit. Jeff Bezos' net worth grew by $75 billion last year. Now Amazon/Whole Foods is forcing their lowest paid employees to sacrifice paid rest time on the job. Is this how we’re thanked for working through a pandemic? We risk our lives every day to keep these stores stocked and clean. We’ve earned our breaks! Let’s send a message to Amazon and Whole Foods: these changes are unacceptable. If you’re a Whole Foods worker and you want to fight back, reach out to us. Together, we can hold Whole Foods accountable for its unfair policies. In Solidarity, Whole Worker and the Emergency Workplace Organizing Committee
