• Close DSF4 for deep cleaning and pay workers for the time off work.
    Amazon has made numerous statements in the recent pass saying that it supports Black lives - for instance in a twitter post it wrote: "The inequitable and brutal treatment of Black people in our country must stop. Together we stand in solidarity with the Black community — our employees, customers, and partners — in the fight against systemic racism and injustice." Black and Latinx people are significantly more likely to be impacted by coronavirus than people of other backgrounds. This is the result of the systemic racism and injustice Amazon claims to stand in solidarity with us against. If that's the case, they should be willing to forego the service of this facility long enough to ensure that workers are as safe as they possibly can be. 1 preventable death is unacceptable. Shut down this facility in defense of Black lives!

  • ESS (Source4Teachers) must be held accountable
    Because of their classification of us, we do not qualify for regular unemployment benefits. We're not given the same benefits, we're not given the same paid time off, we're not even allowed in the union - at least not the way my district negotiated ESS's contract, I can imagine this is true elsewhere. It's ludicrous that I could work alongside district hired employees who have Union representatives to be their voice & hold the school accountable during this very uncertain time. Subcontracting teacher's aides, especially special education ones, like me, is bad for students, staff & the reputation of the school. It also entirely disenfranchises aspiring educators, like myself, who took a permanent position with a school to fund my way to teacher certification. Now, why would I even bother....? I'm sure many are in my position & that needs to change now for the future of education. Forbes named them a best largest employer for 3 years in a row, at the very least that needs to stop.

  • Tazza d'Oro Barista Solidarity Petition
    Why are we making these requests? We all care deeply about Tazza d’Oro and the people that we serve, but we cannot continue to work if it is unsafe and our basic needs aren’t met (ie. health insurance and clear status’ of pay). We want to continue to work at Tazza d’Oro, but we want it to be a better work environment, one that is safe for ourselves and customers. Many of these requests were in front of mind prior to COVID19, but the pandemic has made their need even clearer. Again - we love our jobs. We would like to return. We just request that we are treated with transparency from management and dignity, as we the baristas provide the efficacy and sustainability of the company.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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?

  • 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.

  • Prove Pizza Hut employees that you're grateful: Pay 'Hazard pay' & 'Paid Sick Leave'!
    1. Your employees, once labeled "expendable" and "non-essential", have been on the front lines providing the best customer service to your customers since before this pandemic begun. The difference now is that you just realized how essential these employees actually are to your multimillion dollar company, they are literally the ones keeping your company alive. 2. These employees are now working under extremely hazardous conditions where they run the risk of contracting COVID-19, it would be the humane thing to compensate them for putting themselves at risk to keep your company afloat. 3. Many of these employees are susceptible to the harsh effects that covid-19 can cause. Some employees run a higher risk than others, but with no other choice but to work because finances have become an even bigger necessity during this time, many are forced to run that risk. 4. It is inhumane to exploit your employees during this pandemic (and even when not experiencing a pandemic) for the work that they are able to provide, and sometimes forced to provide on the grounds that they can be fired for not wanting to risk their lives for $14 an hour, and not AT LEAST consider the hazardous conditions they are put through and warrant the use of Hazard pay & paid sick leave for those that are not able to come to work because they don't want to risk getting others sick. 5. It is extremely important that you understand how much you rely on these employees as much as they rely on you for their biweekly checks to be able to make ends meet. These employees are essential, they are the backbone of Pizza Hut, and they do their best to please customers and hit sales. 6. It is important that you act with empathy during a pandemic and truly show your employees that you care about them and their families. Not by insulting them with free food, but by giving them a bonus for all their hard work even during a crisis in which they run the risk of being infected all to keep your company running.

  • Tell Target: Shipt shoppers need paid leave, too.
    Target’s grocery delivery service, Shipt, is more popular than ever as families look to have basic supplies delivered to their homes instead of going into stores during the COVID-19 pandemic. Demand is so high the company is looking to hire 10,000 new employees. But Shipt’s 100,000 “shoppers”--the employees who shop for and deliver groceries for Target stores--don’t have basic protections like cleaning supplies to keep themselves safe, or paid leave in case they get sick or need to care for a family member. And the pay is so low, many Shipt shoppers can’t afford to take time off work--even if it puts their health and their families at risk. In fact, most Target store employees get up to 150 days of paid medical leave, and 4 weeks of family caregiving leave--but the Shipt shoppers who deliver the products to our homes don’t get any. In a time when many consumers don’t want to go into stores to shop, delivery services like Shipt are providing a major revenue source for Target and other grocery stores. Shipt shoppers are working side by side with Target store employees--but don’t have access to the same paid leave to support themselves and their families. That’s why Shipt shoppers went on strike earlier this week. They’re demanding paid leave, hazard pay, and basic safety and cleaning supplies like masks and hand sanitizer. Target--which is one of the largest retailers in the country--can afford to protect EVERYONE who works in its stores as well as its customers during this pandemic. If we all speak out now, we can pressure Target to provide these basic protections to Shipt shoppers. Will you sign the petition?
