  • Keep Jimmy John's Workers and Customers Safe
    We, the undersigned workers of Jimmy John's are concerned about the COVID-19 Health Crisis, and are worried about how our current work situation is putting us and others directly in harm’s way. We do not feel it is safe to be allowing customers to continue coming into the lobby when the CDC and medical community agree that we have not yet even reached the peak of this crisis. Even with the precautions that management has taken to make things safer, the reality is that our stores are mostly small enclosed spaces, COVID-19 is highly contagious, and cases in Indiana are continuing to rise by the hundreds each day. Also, our state does not have regularly accessible testing so the actual number of confirmed cases and deaths are likely far higher than what they are reported as now. We understand that sales are down, but we believe that management must put the lives of its customers and staff over its own profit. If one of us gets sick and is unable to take paid time off or the lobby is opened then they have significantly greater risk of spreading the virus to the rest of the staff and to customers. We cannot in good conscience put ourselves, our families, and our customers at even greater risk by keeping the lobby open and increasing the amount of direct contact that could likely spread the virus further. The close contact at the register and in the lobby means that anyone taking orders and drivers returning from deliveries come well within six feet of many customers and put both parties at risk.

  • No Shirt, No Shoes, No Mask, No Service
    “Models show that if 80 percent of people wear masks that are 60 percent effective, easily achievable with cloth, we can get to an effective R0 of less than one. That’s enough to halt the spread of the disease.” https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2020/04/dont-wear-mask-yourself/610336/ We can do our part to slow the spread of covid-19 by requiring customers to wear masks in order to receive service at Starbucks stores. Starbucks already requires partners to wear masks, but this is only protecting others from employees and is doing nothing to protect employees from customers and does not protect customers from each other. Starbucks China requires customers to wear masks before entering stores, we can and should do the same here in North America.

  • Hazard Pay and Paid Sick Leave for Domino's Employees
    As food service workers, Domino's employees are considered essential workers, providing food to their communities. However, workers in the stores have received little to no benefits to compensate us for the added risks we are now under. We also have very little safety nets should any of us fall sick. We are taking care of our communities and deserve to be fairly compensated for it. We deserve to be taken care of.

  • No Mask, No Service
    It is to protect both the employees and the customers from potentially catching anything and it keeps everyone safe. The workers should not have to be put at more risk just because a customer does not want to wear a mask.

  • Tyson Foods: Don't Reopen Without Paid Leave
    Tyson Foods, one of the largest meat processing companies in the world, has become the next deadly epicenter of the Coronavirus pandemic. Meat processing plants have long been one of the most dangerous workplaces in America, but the Coronavirus has made the situation drastically worse. Meat processors work shoulder to shoulder in crowded plants. From Iowa to Georgia, thousands of employees at meat processing plants have gotten sick and several have even died--forcing Tyson to close multiple plants where outbreaks had occurred. Now, Tyson is planning to reopen plants, after President Trump ordered meat processors to stay open. That means that employees will be going back to work in an environment where social distancing is impossible--but since Tyson has no comprehensive paid sick or family leave policies, they’ll be forced to choose between their paycheck and protecting their health and their families. That’s why employees and consumers are speaking out together: Nobody should have to risk their health--or their family’s health--to go to work. Tyson must provide paid leave to all employees before they reopen a single plant. Will you add your name?

  • Portland Public Schools Campus Security Agents and Nutrition Services Staff Deserve Incentive Pay
    Across most industries, “essential employees” are on the front lines of the Coronavirus crisis, supporting our communities and ensuring people continue to have access to services and resources. This includes the employees of the Portland Public School system, including the Campus Security Agents keeping campuses safe and Nutrition Services employees who are still making meals for food insecure kids to pick up while they are learning from home. Like many workers across the state, our Nutrition Services employees and Campus Security Agents are stepping up to support our communities during this crisis. While most of their coworkers are thankfully able to stay safely at home with full pay due to Governor Brown’s Executive Order, many are risking exposure to make sure that students won’t go hungry. In addition to the risk of exposure to COVID-19, these dedicated employees are constantly exposed to the elements, working outdoors in weather that is often rainy and cold. These employees should be recognized for this effort by receiving an Incentive Pay differential for their work during this state of emergency. These workers are putting themselves at extreme risk to help us, many with low-wages and few benefits. It is time that we as a community come together to support them and provide them with an Incentive Pay differential to compensate them for the risks they are taking. They continue to do the work that all of us depend on, and while many of us have the luxury to work from home, they are going out everyday to keep our kids safe and fed.

  • UWHCA Healthcare Heroes Deserve REAL Communication
    This is a hard and confusing time for all of us; but when we ask questions seeking clarity, 1 of 3 things happens: 1."We'll get back to you" or "I don't know", 2. Different supervisors provide different information, 3. We get policed for our "tone" and told not to ask questions (this is the most infuriating). Even if we don't like the answers, we deserve the truth: be it about COVID cases and available PPE, about the safety of re-sterilization, or, about how much the system received in CARES act and other funding from the federal government to offset the recent losses.

  • The Pavilion at Glacier Valley Workers Demand Fair COVID-19 Pay!
    As long-term care workers, we're facing unprecedented challenges right now, and we come to work every day to provide quality care for our residents. We're glad our employer sees that, but we should be treated fairly in how our hard work and dedication are recognized.

  • Enforce Social Distancing at Sherwin Williams
    Employees deserve to feel safe. As a "sales driven" company district and store managers have many reasons to not follow optional procedures as it can effect their bonus payments. Employees have become frustrated, angry, scared, or just plan overwhelmed by the changing policies and lack of enforcement. No guarentee of pay has been made which leaves employees feeling like they just endanger themselves to earn a living. We ask that all store employees have a say in optional policies. If one employee is not comfortable then no one should be able to side step the policy. We ask that curbside is clarified that no one has to load paint into a customer's vehicle if they are not comfortable. We ask that a barrier is set up to prevent customers from opening or crowding doors. We ask that the company offer employees leave with a guarentee that they will have a job when they come back. We ask that a portal for concerns be opened with a guaranteed response from someone hire than district management to discourage district management from intimidating employees.

  • MARTA: Remove any/all management who puts employees at risk for COVID-19
    Yesterday, April 13, 2020, I came in on my first day as a new hire in MARTA's Customer Care Center. Before my first day, I asked the Senior Recruiting Officer in human resources what practices MARTA had in place for COVID-19. She told me that I could wear a mask, but she wasn't sure what the Customer Care Center's practices were. However, that is not what I saw when I showed up for duty. I got mean and nasty stares from several MARTA employees - even the front desk security guard. Worst, the Customer Care Center management - on top of stating they were not ready on how to go about training me during COVID-19, I had to endure rude and snide remarks where I was told I need to speak up and that this is a call center and I need to speak up. Mind you, I had to endure such insults and snide remarks despite the fact that I bring over seven years of experience in call center and customer service. Therefore, no frank and practical discussion was made to me about how my training would be conducted and whether or not I could wear the mask. The day culminated with the Customer Care Center director, Ms. De Jesus, accusing me of being "insubordinate" after I tried to speak louder to her and the other managers - because they repeatedly told me they could not hear me. I saw at the Customer Care Center that no one was wearing masks - including management. Their solution to comply with CDC guidelines was to rotate sending home some employees to work, and bringing them back into the office. However, my previous employer did not take such risks with our call center - they sent all employees to work virtually and did not place a requirement on us to return to the office. In sum, MARTA's management shamelessly had no issue with making false allegations of me being "insubordinate", so that they could wipe their hands free of being inconvenienced in having to allow me to wear a mask to work and/or make reasonable accommodations to protect its employees. Unfortunately, this is becoming a trend in many workplaces - where employers are not protecting their employees, and resorting to manufacturing incidents where they can remove someone under a subjective allegation of being "insubordinate"; and, with this pandemic - such illegal and immoral practices should be condemned.
