• Shipt’s app glitches hurt all shoppers and violates CA’s Protect App-Based Drivers & Services Act
    Shipt’s platform glitches take time and money away from shoppers. Since Shipt has fully implemented The California Protect App-Based Drivers and Services act on it’s platform, California Shipt shoppers have been timed out erroneously from the platform due to an app glitch and shoppers have also reported to Shipt that they are not getting an accurate guaranteed minimum due to the current app glitch. In compliance with California’s Protect App-Based Drivers and Services Act, Shipt created a step on it’s platform requiring shoppers to swipe “Head to Store” when doing so as a way for Shipt to record a shoppers engaged time and miles. After an app update on Oct 20, 2022, shoppers began to notice an issue with the head to store time in the app. For delivery only orders, the head to store time changes by the minute and for Shop and Deliver orders the app resets, forcing shoppers to re-swipe Head to Store. In some cases, shoppers who have already started shopping, are forced to re-swipe and rescan the barcodes for all the items already shopped. This would also mean all the time spent shopping an order and miles driven to the store would not be accurate. According to California’s Protect App-Based Drivers and Services Act, “ride-share and delivery drivers deserve economic security.” Pursuant to this act, a network company shall ensure a guaranteed minimum for each app-based driver that cannot be reduced and shall apply for all engaged time spent completing that rideshare request or delivery request. The act defines “engaged miles” as all miles driven during engaged time and “engaged time” is defined as the period of time, as recorded in a network company’s online-enabled application or platform, from when an app-based driver accepts a rideshare request or delivery request to when the app-based driver completes that rideshare request or delivery request. Due to the nature in which Shipt offers its shoppers orders, the platform has created a swipe function to record its shoppers engaged time, however the app’s current glitch prevents Shipt from accurately recording shoppers engaged time and miles. Shoppers have reported the timed out app glitch to Shipt for over a year, and the current “Head to Store” app glitch to Shipt but Shipt has not given any notice to California shoppers indicating that it is aware of the problem nor have California shoppers received any reassurance that any long standing app issues are being addressed. These app glitches are in breach of California’s Protect App-Based Drivers and Services Act, which was overwhelmingly approved by California voters in 2020. Shipt states that it’s the drivers responsibility to swipe head to store when doing so in order for Shipt to record a shoppers engaged time and miles, but what recourse do shoppers have when shoppers have completed this step and are forced to do it again, erasing initial engaged time and miles?

  • App Workers Demand Freedom and Fair Wages
    Real freedom is about more than making a living while hoping today is a good one; it's also about having the freedom to negotiate a fair return on our work, affordable health care and good benefits we can rely on, and paid time off to care for loved ones and retire in dignity. By standing together across race and place, we can ensure working people have the freedom to join together in union and live a good life, no exceptions.

  • Ikea Workers Against Forced Arbitration
    We are losing our right to a fair trial and jury. It is not a matter of if, but when. While there are exceptions to arbitration, there is nothing stopping that from being changed in the future. After this change, the focus will shift, and Ikea may have an easier time changing the terms without anyone noticing. A jury and fair trial is more fair to the employees, and the company is acting to prevent employees from ever seeing their day in court. If we do not stand up now, this will go into action, and it will get worse. We must stand in solidarity to protect current and future workers.

  • Revert Shift Times at LVO
    This change has caused unnecessary stress as some employees are now barely making it in on time or are forced to show up excessively early, and others post work obligations are also facing interference. The local community is dealing with a huge inconvenience since this change has heavily congested the roads surrounding the plant, in turn this has the potential to lead to an unsafe environment for its residents. By reverting the start times, the company would also be reinforcing its pledge to be a green facility by reducing unnecessary emissions as a result of the abundance of vehicles sitting at idle.

  • Gig Workers Demand Safety, Transparency and a Living Wage
    Chicago drivers like our work - but for too long, greedy corporations have been driving down pay while charging customers higher fares and skimming more off of the top of the fares we earn. Every day, we put our lives and our vehicles on the line to provide a service our customers depend upon. We deserve the ability to earn a predictable and consistent income, and to know that the companies we work with are doing everything in their power to keep us safe.

  • Expose Eric Kretschman & Highland Hospitality LLC : Workers Wages Stolen Across All Establishments
    Philadelphia’s Restaurant Industry Professionals must stand up to predatory business owners. They cannot continue to do business in Philadelphia. Employers should not be benefiting off a thriving and supportive community while providing the community negligent work environments. It is unacceptable. Business owners should not be willing to steal from its staff, obfuscate responsibilities and create financial disasters for employees and community members. Workers across the country are still recovering from a historic economic crisis and now must face having to fight for wages they earned.

  • Nitrado Global Company Equality
    The friction between Nitrado and MCProHosting that has formed since the acquisition has caused great distress to the employees at MCProHosting. Many in the company have expressed that they feel as though MCProHosting is the "ugly duckling" of the three brands. We have been consistently told that "there is no Nitrado and MCProhosting, we are all Nitrado Global," but that sentiment seems to be lost when it comes to the equal and fair treatment of Nitrado Global employees who work under the MCProHosting brand. Due to the wages we are offered being below market rate, many employees find it difficult to pay their bills, and many full time employees that have been with the company for years have to take on second jobs or side-gigs to pay their bills. Employees have expressed fears regarding what changes to health insurance coverage will mean for them. For many, this means going without healthcare, or going into severe debt just to have their health taken care of. Restrictive PTO policies combined with severe short staffing lead employees to not take vacations or sick leave, and when they do use their time off, they often continue to work during those vacations or sick days. It is extremely rare to see someone at MCPH take vacation regularly, and even more rare to see them offline during that vacation. Multiple employees right now are on vacation and working. Short-staffing and high standards have caused the support team to feel as though they must work overtime. This traps them in a circumstance where they must choose between providing less-than-exemplary customer service or working beyond their hours and risking disciplinary action. This is a problem that could easily be remedied by staffing departments appropriately based on demand.

  • Uber Drivers Demand Our Fair Share
    I know that other drivers will join in, because we speak on various platforms and are all in agreement! Rideshare companies need to pay their drivers more money in order for us to stay on the road! A lot of us drivers can get other jobs, but there are some that have physical disabilities and home situation‘s, which prevent them from doing the same! My best friend has been driving with Uber for almost 6 years and she’s in a wheelchair. This job provides her with an income, because she is able to put her wheelchair in the trunk of her vehicle and drive. She is an awesome human being and it’s loved by all of her riders! She, and all other drivers, deserve a job that pays us fairly.

  • A Call for Travel Nurses to Negotiate against Unfair Practices
    Corporate will never grant these requests out of generosity, and agencies will not push for them unless we demand that they do. To bring about these changes, we need to negotiate as a collective-- effectively “boycotting" certain contracts, and being vocal with our recruiters about what we will not tolerate. Without this very basic organization, we will always be undercutting each other, always playing into the interests of the hospital owners and employers; but, Organized, we can make our market as pro-nurse as possible.
