• Bathroom Breaks
    When working for any full-time company one should be provided with time to perform natural bodily functions while on the clock. If we were physically in the office we would probably not have to clock out to use the restroom and it should be an expectation when working for a company for 40 + hours a week. Holding in bodily functions is not good for anyone especially post-partum moms for example.

  • H-E-B Punishment-Free Sick Days
    Tell me if this sounds familiar: "X is sick? Yeah, I heard there's something going around the store..." "I heard that almost the entire X department is sick.. " "I'm sick but I really can't afford the steps for calling in..." How often have you seen someone at work who was definitely too sick to be there? For me, I know it's been far too often. Time after time, our teammates come into work sick because they know they would be ⅓ of the way to termination if they called out. That's why I started this petition — to give us a voice in this policy. We deserve to be heard and to be taken care of. I'm sure you remember our training where they said "Don't come to work sick! We'll work with you." It seems almost funny now. 2 steps for calling out sick, when you probably got sick from a teammate who couldn't afford the steps to call out, or an old dude wearing a political shirt who decided to make his cough your problem. On top of that, now according to the HEB Executive Medical Officer, COVID-19 isn't contagious if you don't have a fever. So all of the CDC guidelines about asymptomatic transmission and self-isolation are just being tossed out the window by corporate. In order to avoid a 40 rating, I had to come into work with a positive test in my hands, coughing and wheezing, and still got a step for leaving early because they *wouldn't send me home*. Help fight to keep ourselves, our teammates, and our customers safe. Let your voice be heard, and sign today.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Support Adoption STAR workers unionizing and fighting retaliation! 🧸⭐️
    Adoption STAR is an agency we have all poured our days, nights, and weekends into while we maintain our own families. Ethical adoption agencies are hard to find in a field with so many historical wrongs, so much exploitation and trauma to address - and we are truly proud to build and maintain STAR. We provide a unique and ethical service of pro-choice pregnancy options counseling and adoption planning, helping to unite expectant moms in an unexpected pregnancy with a family she can trust and maintain a relationship with. We find homes for older children who are unable to unite with their birth families and enduring the instability of foster care. We run a small international program. We prepare families painstakingly for all of the above. From the office, the field, to the hospital, we field calls, maintain confidentiality and legal compliance, and are with people as they go through life-changing events in their families. 💔 But some of us struggle when we try to grow our own families, or even to make ends meet. 💸 🚑👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 We do not receive any assistance with cost-sharing for our dependents in our healthcare plan, severely cutting into our wages. One of our workers makes only a few hundred dollars in her paychecks despite being a full-time master's level professional, to insure her family. 🤱🤯 We do not have a standard for parental leave, leading to inconsistent and inadequate solutions when we become parents. 📝💰 We face strict compliance and administrative tasks as a child welfare agency, but these positions salaries and supports are inconsistent and low compared to local standards. We found that a new member of this team was making the same amount as a worker who had been here 3 years. 😷🦠 We have not received employee health specialist fittings for N95s for our clinical staff that goes into hospitals. One worker has contracted COVID and then had to be off work from her vulnerable expectant clients for extended time. ☎️🕐 We regularly work on-call without guaranteed coverage to make up the hours that burn us out, and always without compensation. When we began organizing, we knew we would make the agency an even more ethical place we were proud to serve at. Instead, four employees who spoke up about our COVID exposures, wages, and unmanageable caseloads were illegally fired. Another worker resigned out of opposition. As of the time of our election, three more pro-union workers overwhelmed with being lied to and intimidated daily, while still faced with inadequate compensation, left. These staff were given no reason or warning of the action taken against their livelihoods, alarming our clients and STAR’s remaining employees. Together, they've given years of service and built their programs, and leave behind several urgent and active cases. This action has increased all of our urgent workloads drastically and unexpectedly. This action has damaged the agency’s reputation, connection to our clients, and ongoing cases. It has the potential to damage our relationships to the entities who partner with us. This action, as it was taken without warning or explanation, has left the remaining staff fearful with no guidance on how to maintain our own employment. We ethically cannot leave the families, moms, dads, and children we serve in the dark. We are organizing because we love Adoption STAR... and we ARE Adoption STAR. Please support our efforts. Thank you for your solidarity - we are going to make it through this together. 🧸⭐️

  • Starbucks Board Needs to Get Their Heads Out of the Sand and Treat Union Organizers with Respect
    Many petitions exist for specific Starbucks issues. Others ask for our support in being pro-union. Some place partners in a precarious situation and so they are afraid to speak up. While it is frowned upon to retaliate against workers, the law is slow, unevenly enforced, and often not harsh enough to deter companies from behaving this way. For example, if an employer is deemed to have wrongfully terminated an employee, they are only required to rehire and “back pay” but they are allowed to dock any wages made at another job during that time. For more information on unfair treatment and the history of the labor movement, I highly recommend Steven Greenhouse’s “Beaten Down, Worked Up” book or the ACLU’s summary on legislation linked below. This petition is for everyone who is cringing at how the company they used to be proud of working for is behaving. For those who want the mud-slinging to stop. For those who want to show their dissent but don’t know how. For partners that have tried talking to their managers and up the chain of command and are tired of dead ends. For anyone who wants corporate to stop closing their eyes with their fingers in their ears— to make them to acknowledge that what they’re doing is ugly and hard to watch, for workers, customers, and onlookers alike. Baristas are pouring their hearts out into #whyweorganize and it is highlighting disturbing trends and actions by a company that hides behind virtue signaling.
