  • All HCA hospitals need proper PPE for healthcare worker safety
    Low supplies of PPE have caused the hospitals to employ unsafe practices for the employees caring for patients. We are being asked to reuse masks and not use the proper level of PPE due to short supply. It is the corporation’s responsibility to react to this shortage and employ whatever means necessary to ensure that its employees’ safety remains a priority. Employees should not have to try to navigate what is a safe alternative to the known gold standard of personal Protective Equipment during this global pandemic. If we are not provided with the necessary equipment to stay safe, we will not be able to continue to care for the patients in our community that depend on us. HCA needs to use its vast resources to secure proper PPE for all of its employees and medical staff members.

  • IWG ACT NOW: Close your Centres! (Regus, Spaces, HQ & other IWG centres)
    After the government announcement on the 23rd of March, unprecedented measures were announced that no one should be leaving their homes unless for exercise, essential travels, shopping or if they are Key Workers going to work. Today, IWG centres remains open; Profiteering from companies during this global pandemic whilst asking their landlord for a 3 months grace period. IWG has not only decided to profit before staff’s welfare, they also gone against their Exceptional Service Statement” – “We exist to help modern, ambitious business work where, when and how they want.” – www.regus.com. During this pandemic, small & medium size companies are making loss and struggling financially whilst locked into a long-term contract unable to leave with no relief or discounts. IWG employees are also forced to decide between working, or to taking holiday leave to get paid. Despite the UK government announcing that they will cover 80% salaries for those who must stay home. IWG employees are not key workers and should be forced to stay home. IWG centres are open 24/7 for members with private office spaces, with the front help-desk open Monday-Friday 8am to 6pm. During this pandemic, IWG can close their front help-desk and centres, but leaving it open to clients who are key-workers which is showing their support to key-workers during these tough times. We ask that IWG reconsiders their situation and provide support to their employees and clients.

  • HSS Inc. Must Provide Sick Pay for All Employees
    HSS security officers are working at the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. As essential personnel working in hospital and airport settings, we run a higher risk of contracting the virus compared to the general public. Infection is not a maybe, it is an inevitability for a percentage of our officers. HSS Inc. says they will pay 2/3 of wages for lost time should any employee contract and PROVE they contracted COVID-19 while on the job, an admittedly difficult task. Alternatively, full-time employees of over a year have access to Paid Catastrophic Leave should they fall ill with the virus. This means part-time employees as well as full-time employees with less than a consecutive year working with HSS will only receive UNPAID medical leave for a COVID-19 infection which they cannot definitively prove was contracted at work. This is not enough. HSS quotes, "security services are critical to the health and wellbeing of both patients and first responders." Our officers need to know they will be compensated for time spent in quarantine regardless of where or how we contract the virus and without stipulations about full-time status or length of time served with HSS. Protecting our clients and our teams from exposure to COVID-19 by quarantining infected individuals is a vital public service⁠—HSS Inc. has an obligation to remove any obstacle that would prevent us from doing so. In order to guarantee that HSS officers do the right thing and self-quarantine when they suspect they have the virus, HSS Inc. must provide sick pay for all the hardworking people who make up this company for the duration of their quarantine. Refusing to do so is an unconscionable disregard for the safety of these employees and the clients they serve.

  • Change Comes Now
    Because the majority of our staff have children. Beyond that, it is already difficult for any of us to support our families. God forbid a medical emergency arise. When asked about hazard pay we were given a very direct, NO! We were told to Use our own PTO that WE had already saved.

  • More pay for healthcare employees
    As many healthcare workers are putting their lives at risk due to the coronavirus and are not getting a single penny of appreciation. They are the most important people that we need during this pandemic. Employees in healthcare are the most at risk than any other job and deserve to be payed hazardous pay for their hard work and dedication. The moral thing to do would be to pay ALL healthcare employees more during this crisis.

  • Rapid Response Monitoring - Prioritize Health Over Work
    As a central station dispatcher we are the liaison between citizens and law enforcement, fire, and medical responders. We show up daily to do our part in case help is needed. By doing so we are not only putting our well being at risk but those in our homes as well. Additional income can help in assisting for childcare due to school closures, groceries, our family members or friends that are now unemployed, etc. Amazon warehouse workers who are paid an hourly wage will now receive double pay for working overtime over 40 overs per week and they also received a $2 increase in pay. Home Depot has also given employees additional 80 hours of paid time off which is designed to make sure sick workers stay home. Whole Foods employees received a $2 an hour increase. Stater Bros. employees working in stores, distribution, transportation, corporate offices and construction received a wage increase of $2 per hour. Target Corp. received a $2 an hour increase and also offered workers that are pregnant, 65 years or older, or who have underlying health risks, access to paid leave for up to 30 days. Starbucks is now paying their employees for the next 30 days, whether they come to work or stay home. Costco has also announced wage increases and better benefits recently as well as Walmart whose pay increased from $15-$19 an hour. Rapid Response claims they appreciate their employees, but do they really? Rapid Response Monitoring is stationed in Corona, CA and its main office in Syracuse, NY. There are now 1,468 positive cases and 27 deaths in California. New York state's death toll has reached 114, surpassing Washington state and accounting a third of all U.S. deaths. COVID-19 is REAL and extremely dangerous. Please help these employees and their families. You can also sign and share at https://www.change.org/rrms-prioritize-the-health-of-your-employees Thank you.

  • SHOULD GROCERS DENY SENIOR & HIGH-RISK EMPLOYEES TIME OFF TO SELF QUARANTINE?
    Forcibly exposing these high-risk groups of people to the public in mass at grocery stores will undoubtedly cause not only unnecessary and untold numbers of deaths among these groups, but also will serve to further overwhelm the healthcare systems, likely creating a snowball effect in the numbers of fatalities due to insufficient or unavailable medical treatment.

  • Burgerville workers need Covid-19 Protections NOW
    These are extraordinary times. Many workers at Burgerville and across the country have little to no choice but to work in conditions that expose them and their loved ones to a deadly virus. Many other workers at Burgerville and across the country have faced severe cuts to their pay or outright layoffs--with no warning, no guarantee of being rehired, and extremely limited financial assistance. For those who are laid off, we are being told not to work but unemployment benefits only get us a fraction of our already insufficient income. This has and will lead to us with further insecurity for our kids, our homes, our food, and our healthcare. Amazon, Whole Foods, New Seasons, Market of Choice, and other companies are already offering workers hazard pay to acknowledge the increased risk that grocery and service workers are facing right now. As one of the few businesses that is able to stay open during the pandemic, it is our responsibility to provide the community with the support it needs--through our food and our health. The less of us who are exposed to the virus, the healthier the community. The less of us who have to rely on public assistance because we have the support of our employer, the more resources for workers laid off from businesses that are no longer open. Now is the time to prioritize that people remain healthy, fed, and housed.

  • COVID-19: Amazon, Please Extend Paid Sick Coverage To All Your Fulfillment Workers
    Many Amazonians at the fulfillment centers have had to call out sick during the Coronavirus outbreak and urgently need Amazon to expand paid sick coverage. We are very grateful that we are allowed to take unlimited sick days this month, but only those of us in quarantine for the Covid-19 virus, and who test positive will be entitled to extra sick pay — which amounts to a mere handful of thousands of Amazonians company-wide. Currently, testing for the Coronavirus remains highly inaccessible to millions of people in the United States. Amazonians who are unable to get tested shouldn’t have to suffer financial duress for staying home, so as not to spread the virus to their coworkers and the public — not knowing if they’ve contracted Covid-19 or not. For Amazon workers who have tried to get tested, many of us have found it next to impossible, because testing at this time is largely only available at the ER, and for people who are showing acute symptoms. Mr. Bezos, please bring smiles to your Amazonians by expanding paid sick coverage to all your workers at the fulfillment centers. March has been a rough month for us and for all Americans, and there seems no end in sight. We'd be so very grateful for this act of goodwill from our CEO.
