• Bartlett Tree Experts: Hourly pay workers need hazard pay now!
    As production 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! Como arborists de Bartlett, nosotros entendemos la importancia de mantener la salud y la seguridad de las propiedades. Queremos continuar el importante trabajo que nosotros matenemos- pero mas importante, nosotros queremos ser reconcido por los riesgos de salud que tomamos por a ver trabajado. Dicen a nostoros que tenemos opciones. Pero tambien el pago y la seguridad es un necescidad de vida. Ahora, no tenemos ese pago y seguridad si decidimos quedar en la casa. Denos la opcion tener una compensacion por "hazard work", o la opcion protegernos en casa con pago y 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.

  • Manager
    This is important because the building is smaller than small bathrooms. And having 10 employees elbow to elbow is breaking the law right now with the Coronavirus pandemic.

  • Provide real hazard pay and protection for workers
    Employees at Giant Company need hazard pay. Hazard pay should cover the expenses associated with the hazard. 10% increase isn't hazard pay. It's a small temporary payment that should be permanent. Giant should have given us 10% as a token of appreciation for our diligence and dedication to the company for our hard work through these stressful times. Transportation alone is $100 a week to work! 10% raise is $1.30 cents an hour. Very small given the risk associated with covid 19 and very small in comparison to other companies. Symptoms take weeks to show and Giant needs to make these changes now.

  • Hazard Pay for Welders and all Skilled Trade job workers.
    Every skilled trade worker has no choice but to come to work. While at work you are putting your health and your family health at risk because you're working around a lot of people. You don't know who's sick. Working in these fields you're putting your health your family health and the general public health at risk. Most jobs like these don't or can't practice social distance or anything else that could help prevent you from getting sick.

  • Hazard Pay/Paid Time Off from Oerther Foods McDonalds
    Workers of this company are only offered the ability to leave without repercussion of losing their jobs. The safety of this county, state, and country falls in the hands of big businesses caring for small profit gain and not caring for the lives of their employees. Workers are risking their lives working in an environment where their nation cannot practice any form of social distancing thus increasing a huge risk of fatalities not only for workers, but for families behind them at home. Many of these workers cannot afford to leave work but cannot afford to lose loved ones or pay absurd pricing for any sick member of the family. This request shouldn't be a thought, more so a necessity considering we are all humans on this earth and this lack of compassion to update any of the facility of what they plan to do with them is repulsive and inhumane. With this petition i encourage all Oerther Foods/McDonald's employees to stand up for what is right for our homes, communities and our way of living.

  • NYC Trader Joe's Crew need Safe Work Conditions and Hazard Pay
    Trader Joe’s has a reputation as a store that treats its employees well. However, during the COVID-19 crisis Crew Members have not been treated with the respect and care that we expect from our company. Other companies with worse reputations have done more to protect and compensate and communicate with their employees. The center of the crisis has moved to New York City, and as front-line essential employees who are partly responsible for keeping NYC fed and healthy, we deserve to be treated with respect and protected from illness.

  • Compensation and Staff Support During Covid-19 Health Crisis
    Employees continue to work at the risk of their own health during a global pandemic in an environment that does not follow social distancing protocol and has a rotation of staff from several surrounding counties that come and leave the facility as frequently as daily. This leaves clients and employees in a vulnerable position as Covid-19 is very contagious and potentially deadly. Employees of Mountain Valley Child and Family Services are asking that the following requests be reviewed and considered as compensation for the risk they are posing to their own health for the benefit of a company that was built on the foundation of Welfare, Safety, Security, and Care for All. MVCFS providing employees with compensation for their extra work and exposure to COVID-19 also provides security, comfort, and increased morale knowing our company has our backs.

  • CORT: Reinstate Terminated Workers/ Provide COVID-19 Protections Now
    CORT has not provided our New Jersey warehouse with adequate protections from the spread of COVID-19. We did not receive gloves or eye protection until March 20, 2020, and closing business on Wednesdays will not reduce transmission among employees. Contracted trucks are not reducing our risk of exposure as the furniture they are unloading may carry coronavirus. Many of our requests are practices recommended by the CDC. We trust that you will do the right thing to protect the health of CORT employees, our families, and our customers.

  • Lift all restrictions on YogaWorks teachers' sick pay immediately
    We earned this sick pay. It rightfully belongs to us and we need it now more than ever. Please show us that you care for us, who have cared for this company, rather than caring most about profit and private equity. We are writing this at the eleventh hour, as more and more people are unable to work and are becoming sick. Nobody anticipated the extent of the public health crisis we are in, but here we all are. The future is uncertain, but the hours of work that we have put in to accrue our sick pay are undeniable. Please respond at once with affirmation that we will get the sick pay we deserve.

  • Coffee is Not Essential
    As Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf continues to operate under the pretense that we are aiding the community by providing food and beverage, but they are in fact only endangering their employees and customers. Coffee bean is taking additional steps to encourage cleanliness and sanitation, however this does not eliminate all possibility of not catching COVID-19. The virus stays in the air and on surfaces for up to 14 days. As many medical professionals are being given a quick easy way to grab coffee, it is also putting the employees at risk as well as any guests that it could be transferred to.

  • IWG ACT NOW: Close your Centres! (Regus, Spaces, HQ & other IWG centres)
    After the government announcement on the 23rd of March, unprecedented measures were announced that no one should be leaving their homes unless for exercise, essential travels, shopping or if they are Key Workers going to work. Today, IWG centres remains open; Profiteering from companies during this global pandemic whilst asking their landlord for a 3 months grace period. IWG has not only decided to profit before staff’s welfare, they also gone against their Exceptional Service Statement” – “We exist to help modern, ambitious business work where, when and how they want.” – www.regus.com. During this pandemic, small & medium size companies are making loss and struggling financially whilst locked into a long-term contract unable to leave with no relief or discounts. IWG employees are also forced to decide between working, or to taking holiday leave to get paid. Despite the UK government announcing that they will cover 80% salaries for those who must stay home. IWG employees are not key workers and should be forced to stay home. IWG centres are open 24/7 for members with private office spaces, with the front help-desk open Monday-Friday 8am to 6pm. During this pandemic, IWG can close their front help-desk and centres, but leaving it open to clients who are key-workers which is showing their support to key-workers during these tough times. We ask that IWG reconsiders their situation and provide support to their employees and clients.
