  • 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!

  • 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).

  • Cemex - Take Care of Your Frontline Workers
    Infrastructure is very important to keep on building but us employees are putting our lives and the lives of our families at risk. First of all, nothing is worth the risk of a profit. It is understood that nobody asked for the circumstances we find ourselves in. Shutting operations down, and sending employees home with pay is the only humane thing to do -- please do not wait until someone from the Cemex family dies. If you do force us to work, we demand that you provide the staff with n95 masks and Hazard pay. We hope you will be the global leader that you are. Sincerely, Your Frontline Workers

  • Burford’s Tree paid workers need hazard pay NOW!/ Necesitamos el Pago por riesgo AHORA
    As production Burford’s arborists and tree care workers, we understand the importance of maintaining safe and healthy landscapes for residents and municipalities. We want to continue the important work that we do to maintain our high standards of care–but most importantly, we want the human health risks we now take in doing so to be acknowledged and valued. We are told that we have choices-We also need pay and security. We are currently not in positions to meet this essential need if we choose to stay home in order to protect our health and well being. Give us the choice to be compensated for hazardous work or to protect ourselves at home and still make ends meet! ESPAÑOL: Como arborists de Burford’s nosotros entendemos la importancia de mantener las buenas condiciones y la seguridad de las propiedades. Queremos continuar el importante trabajo que nosotros mantenemos- pero mas importante, nosotros queremos ser reconocidos por los riesgos de salud que tomamos todos los días por realizar nuestro trabajo. Nos comunican que tenemos opciones. Pero tambien el pago y la seguridad es una necesidad de vida. Ahora, no tenemos ese pago y seguridad si decidimos quedarnos en la casa. Por favor denos la opción de tener una compensación por "hazard work", o la opción protegernos en casa con seguridad.

  • Protect retail & grocery store workers during coronavirus pandemic
    Lots of grateful customers thank us for supporting them. But America’s biggest employers aren’t treating us like heroes, they are treating us like we are their bottomline. Walmart employs many people who are facing the pandemic without paid time off or health insurance. They penalize us when we’re sick and don’t accept doctors’ notes as excused absences. Amazon is hiring hundreds of thousands of employees to meet increasing demand – but most of these jobs are part-time without health care. Even worse, the government’s response so far has specifically excluded most retail and grocery employees – any company with more than 500 employees isn’t required to provide the emergency federal paid sick leave. Working in retail and grocery stores is a lot more dangerous than it was last month. Corporations need to recognize the worth of our work. Thank you for supporting us.
