• Firestone Complete Auto Care Workers need hazard pay
    Hourly sales advisors have taken approximately 30-40% pay cut due to reduced hours and technicians(the men and women who have to get in and out of several different vehicles per day) have taken as much as a 70% cut in pay. No salary employees have lost a single dime in salary and many are working from home, away from the danger. Firestone should pay front line employees hazard pay for risking their health in order for the company to maintain customer base.

  • Protect the Lives & Health of AA Airport Employees - Request to Install Plexiglass “Sneeze Shields"
    We are considered as essential critical infrastructure workers and have been working 3 a.m. to 1 a.m., almost around the clock 7days a week, after Governors around the nation issued the Emergency Directives and/or orders to stay home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As frontline airline employees, we face the general public and take pride in servicing and assisting those who travel from around the country and the world. However, that means we interact with our customers in close proximity. We take their boarding passes, driver licenses, passports, paperwork and luggage from them though it is very difficult to maintain six-feet social distancing. As a result, we are often coughed on, sneezed on and even spat on occasionally. We feel very vulnerable and have been working in fear during this pandemic period with the life threatening illness. The company recently allowed us to wear a face covering at work and we know you are trying to ship face masks to each station. However, due to a worldwide shortage of masks, we may have to wait a several weeks for the shipment. In addition, according to the CDC, they recommend wearing face covers so that people around us are protected as we might be asymptomatic. That means it might protect others, but we still won’t be protected. This is to protect both our customers and ourselves.

  • Employees’ Response to Foxtrot’s Re-Opening Plan
    Chicago continues to be the epicenter of coronavirus cases in Illinois, with cases increasing every day, despite social distancing efforts. The city is opening soon but the risk of contracting COVID-19 remains, and a vaccine will most likely not be on the market before the end of 2020. The threat of coronavirus has not gone away, and will only grow exponentially once shelter in place orders are lifted and more of the population interacts with one another. The decision to open is one of economic pressure, not because the virus has lessened in severity. The majority of Foxtrot workers are uninsured, which makes it harder for us to receive proper medical care if we get sick. This threatens not only the lives of employees, but any guest who enters the stores. Furthermore, as noted by Demei Campbell of Foxtrot West Loop, “it is no secret that during this pandemic, people of color have been disproportionately affected and with that knowledge we have yet to receive any indication that will ensure our contributions will not go under appreciated. What is evident is that this type of relationship with corporations and front line workers has been normalized. It is evident that things are being handled through a white privileged lens and everyone is comfortable and complacent with the way things have been going.” Re-opening is not acceptable, as it denies the reality of many of the employees on the ground at Foxtrot, risking their lives by leaving their homes to serve the community, make the business run as successfully as possible, and obtain their livelihoods. During these trying and uncertain times, we urge Foxtrot to look after its staff and community and to treat them with dignity so we can be united. The best thing we can do right now is to look out for one another. The numbers that are reported every day aren’t statistics; they are human lives – fathers, mothers, sons, daughters. Our pride for Foxtrot has turned into helplessness and we feel forgotten by management and corporate. We have first-hand experience seeing young people’s cards declining and have had handfuls of conversations with customers who have lost their jobs. It would be devastating to see a customer or another employee contract COVID-19 knowing we could’ve done more to address this. By fulfilling the desired demands mentioned above, Foxtrot will ensure the health and well-being of its employees and customers impacted by this global crisis. As store team members, vendors, dispatchers and general managers we are exposed to unsafe conditions while everyone above a certain pay grade is protected. We, the front-line workers, will be the ones to lead the way during this public health, economic, and political crisis. Support us and acknowledge the incredible work we are doing - instead of ordering lattes from us, join us. Thank us for the work we are doing. Let us know we aren’t alone in this! We in no way want to halt store operation or to put the community at risk of losing our service, but storewide we are prepared to engage in further actions that are protected under federal law, specifically, Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act as well as collective action designed to safeguard our immediate health and wellbeing from imminent danger as defined by OSHA, Standard number 1977.12 (b) (2).

  • Tell Walmart CEO Doug McMillon: Take Action Now to Prevent More Deaths
    Walmart is the country’s largest corporate employer, and I’m alarmed at how little they’re doing to stop the spread of the virus. Walmart also laid the groundwork for this crisis through years of negligence, leaving hundreds of thousands of employees without adequate paid sick leave or health insurance. That means if someone wakes up sick, they have to make the impossible decision between working sick or losing their pay. What Walmart decides to do doesn’t just affect folks who work there -- it affects customers, suppliers, contractors, and families when their loved ones die due to corporate negligence.

  • Protect the Lives and Health of Luggers During the COVID-19 Epidemic
    We are putting our lives, our health, our families’ health, and the well-being of our communities at risk! Luggers continue to demand that Lugg treats its workers with respect and dignity, as things have not improved since we launched our first petition: https://www.coworker.org/petitions/treat-luggers-with-dignity-and-respect Since stay-at-home orders started due to the COVID-19 Epidemic, Lugg has been asking that we pair-up with our moving partners, and sit inside our vans for hours without dispatching any jobs, therefore not getting paid, and being exposed to Coronavirus. We have not received proper training or protective gear to respond to the crisis, and we are not given the opportunity to clock-out and comply with stay-at-home orders. Instead, we are being constantly asked to begin shifts earlier, and then Support makes us wait for hours without work and without pay. If we leave, they demote us, scold us, or punish us for not being available - even when there is no work!

  • Stop ABM / Mercury Marine (FDL, WI) From Killing Us!
    It is important because ABM / Mercury does not care about their workers. They do not even give them the proper PPE to wear. They are putting everyone's lives at risk but their own. The workers do not want to be there but instead should be at home with their families and loved ones.

  • Taco Bell’s employees and COVID-19
    For the safety of all Taco Bell employees, customers and their families. We the undersigned workers of Taco Bell are concerned about the Covid 19 Health Crisis, and we are worried about how our current work situation is putting us and others directly in harm’s way. Taco Bell hasn’t even considered any sort of bonus or hazard pay raise during this COVID-19 outbreak. McDonald’s, Subway, Arby’s, and most other fast food restaurants that have now been deemed “essential” are getting $2-3 pay raises. Some jobs have given their employees hazard pay and they aren’t working either because the business closed. We’re put at risk and putting our families at risk every day that we go to work for Taco Bell. We are told to change gloves and wash hands between the customers. However, we aren’t given enough staffing to allow us to take these precautions and maintain the company’s desired drive through times without getting questioned about why we aren’t working fast enough. We asked our store manager if we can wear a face mask at work to protect ourselves and he said the regional general manager told him that if an employee feels uncomfortable enough to wear a face mask then that is on them and they need to go home. The regional general manager indicated this is because wearing masks “creates panic and fear”. We say NO! WE ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A GLOBAL PANDEMIC right now and people are being advised by the CDC to wear masks to protect themselves. Finally, Taco Bell recently had a “Free taco for every customer (obviously in the car) WITHOUT PURCHASE NECESSARY”. Those of us that worked that day know it was the busiest we’ve seen the store since the Corona pandemic began and we have recently been informed they’re going to have another one on the 7th! Corporate is literally encouraging people to come to their store in the midst of the pandemic! April 2nd in the morning there was one case in Dixon, as of 4pm that day there were two and due to what we know about asymptomatic carriers there are likely many more than that. A business losing a few weeks to a month of business isn’t as important as endangering our lives and the lives of our children. By signing this petition we are standing together to demand management make changes before something happens to one of us. If one of us gets sick, we all get sick! Consequently, we respectfully and formally request that Taco Bell make immediate improvements to our paid time off and workplace health and safety policies. Specifically, we want to request: That, ideally, the store close until further notice and provide everyone paid leave until reopening. If the business would be existentially threatened by our first improvement then we request that management support employees and workplace safety by providing a month paid leave to stay home for any employees who have been exposed to COVID-19, show symptoms of COVID-19, test positive for COVID-19, have underlying conditions putting them at greater risk, or live with children or elderly individuals at greater risk. For those that continue to work we request proper personal protective equipment such as abundant latex gloves, face masks, and hand sanitizer in the store. We also request a $3 hazard pay increase for all those that choose to work during this crisis. We engage in this collective, concerted activity under the protection of Federal Law, specifically, Section 7 of the National Labor Relations Act. We are also prepared to engage in further actions that are also protected by the Act, as well as collective action designed to safeguard our immediate health and wellbeing from imminent danger as defined by OSHA, Standard number 1977.12 (b) (2).
