• Stop PMG DeJoy: Protect the USPS and Election Integrity
    We North Carolinians for Voting Integrity in State Elections and Defense of the Public Postal Service, the postal public, along with our neighbors, families, postal workers and the wider community, continue to be distressed by the intentional deterioration of the service provided by the USPS, considered by most of us to be a national treasure. Under the mis-leadership of PMG Louis DeJoy postal jobs have become more difficult while the decreased service standards make social communications and commercial life more difficult. DeJoy’s 10 Year Plan, includes the rotten apple of deliberate slowdown of first class mail which, if implemented, guarantees the continued worsening of this situation. PMG DeJoy has also, predating his appointment, contributed to the attack on democracy by engaging in multiple “straw-donor” schemes that are blatant violations of campaign finance laws. He’s thus aided in the election of candidates that are now working hard to restrict voting rights. Primarily an attack on voters of color, it impacts all working people and must be stopped. His corruption seems to have no limits as revealed by the recent reports of his purchasing $300,0000 in bonds from a company owned in part by Ron Bloom, chairperson of the Postal Board of Governors, that has the power to hire and fire the Postmaster General. The Justice Department is investigating his activities in relation to Federal election violations. 20 state Attorney Generals, including NC’s own Josh Stein, have signed a letter to the Postal Regulatory Commission (PRC) bemoaning the service standards And the PRC has issued its Official Opinion strongly opposing DeJoy’s slowdown of first class mail, too. We cannot allow him to continue to negatively impact our lives.

  • Disability Care Workers Demand Oversight Agency Enforce Dignified Work Standards!
    We are workers in disability services writing to address issues that impact us and the people we provide services to—people with developmental and intellectual disabilities in the greater Philadelphia region. As direct care workers, employment support professionals, personal care attendants, and other essential workers, we make it possible for many people to live and work in their communities, and without the revenue we bring in, the provider agencies we work for could not exist. However, despite our critical responsibilities, the work is not taken seriously, and consequently the well-being of disabled people is disregarded. ODP and provider agencies do not meet the needs of the people they allegedly serve because they do not invest in their workforce. Provider agencies do not pay most disability service workers a living wage, and they provide cursory, poor-quality training. Low wages and inadequate training lead to high turnover, chaotic workplace environments, and a workforce who is unprepared to meet the needs and desires of the people we serve. The high turnover rate combined with the lack of training disrupt peoples’ lives and increase the risk of preventable incidents, which often cause incredible trauma. ODP and provider agencies’ failure to invest in us as workers directly harms people with disabilities. We, as disability service workers, must be paid at least $15 an hour and be trained commensurate with the importance of our role in the lives of other human beings. ODP and provider agencies exclude disability service workers from the conversation about how to improve our field, and we demand to be recognized for our essential input. In addition, disabled people must be included in the conversation to center their needs, insight, and experience. Disabled people frequently do not have a choice about who is part of their lives or system of care and are more likely to experience abuse because they may depend on others to assist them. Those with direct experience of receiving services must be the primary authority on the value of the services they receive and the broader conversations around our field. We demand a comprehensive training system that prepares workers for their jobs that is developed and led by people with disabilities. It is not fair to the workers or to disabled people to be treated with such disregard. Workers need to be prepared for our jobs, and we deserve opportunities to grow and develop as professionals. Disabled people deserve well-trained workers who provide safe and steady support. They should not be placed in abusive or stressful situations or be forced to ask a stranger, friend, or relative to help them because they can’t trust their workers or the provider system to prioritize their well-being. The lack of recognition given to the importance of direct care work misses opportunities to create commitment in the job and enduring positive relationships with the community it intends to serve. We demand that the Pennsylvania Office of Developmental Programs and provider agencies of the Philadelphia area pay a wage of dignity and provide training commensurate with the great responsibility we have in supporting and caring for our fellow human beings. Once a critical mass of disability care workers sign onto the petition, we will deliver this petition and escalate to ensure ODP meets our demands.

  • Dining Workers Contract Proposal
    Dining workers are essential workers and right now their labor is not valued by the administration. The college said they could afford to pay us $100/hr but that we don't deserve it. Especially during a pandemic, we can't feel pressured to work while sick. We need to get back to the bargaining table and win a fair contract!

  • We Demand Safety from COVID at Whole Foods!
    While the COVID-19 vaccine is becoming more readily available across the country, Whole Foods workers are still getting sick! Management everywhere are allowing pre-pandemic crowd sizes, despite the country still only being a third vaccinated. Mask mandates are rarely enforced. This isn’t new, Whole Foods workers have been reporting all pandemic that management teams have consistently put workers in danger rather than enforce any meaningful safety protocols with customers. Whole Worker has received reports from workers who were lied to about cleaning crews coming in. We’ve gotten reports of stores where as many as a quarter of store employees tested positive for COVID and where employees were only told to quarantine over a week after management knew they’d worked a shift with someone who had tested positive for COVID. We’ve even heard from stores where management forced employees to open their store without running water, and thus no working bathrooms or water to refill disinfectant, despite this being a violation of company policy, state law, and health codes. We’re tired of being put second in Whole Foods’ pursuit of profit and customer pleasing. No profit line is worth our health and safety. We deserve better and we demand safe working conditions! If you want to connect with other Whole Foods workers taking action for their health and safety reach out to us at https://workerorganizing.org/talk-with-an-organizer/ and a volunteer organizer will be in touch!

  • 7901's Petition for Change
    Sharon has caused multiple amazing employees to lose all motivation do their job, or to even show up for their job. The employees dread coming into work because they know the unfair situations in which we must work in. Sharon condones rude selfish behavior with her favoritism towards a single employee who refuses to follow our standards or even learn her duties to the fullest extent. Sharon let's her do anything she pleases, including treating the other staff like they are below her, doing the bare minimum and less of her duties, taking breaks and leaving whenever she wishes, spending most of her shifts on the phone, and then retaliates against the honest hardworking employees that speak up against the unfairness. She has caused our store to suffer and our guests to become disgruntled by the constant disruptions in our workplace. After months of asking for fair change, Sharon has done nothing but turn a blind eye to Jennifer's disturbances to the crew and retaliation against those who complain. Sharon is constantly mocking and spewing out profane and racial slurs against our customers, employees and anyone else who dares to speak against her personal views inside and even outside of the store. She is highly unprofessional and not fit to run a staff if she refuses to change her ways and drop the ongoing discrimination as well as exposing contagious employees to work shifts that she could easily fill with a healthy employee.

  • We Demand Restoration of Break Time!
    Almost exactly a year ago, we saw corporations calling grocery workers “heroes” — what a difference a year makes! A new company-wide policy on team member meal and rest periods which went into effect on February 8th has shortened our breaks from 15 minutes to 10. The policy change has affected different regions in different ways. Many stores offered two paid 15 minute breaks per shift - under the new policy, all they get is 10. Some stores offered workers a paid 30 minute lunch break - under the new policy, that break will no longer be paid. Whole Foods claims that they are doing this to “streamline regional processes and policies.” In reality, they are bringing every store in America down to the bare minimum. This policy was designed to offer us as little break time and as little pay as the law will permit. Jeff Bezos' net worth grew by $75 billion last year. Now Amazon/Whole Foods is forcing their lowest paid employees to sacrifice paid rest time on the job. Is this how we’re thanked for working through a pandemic? We risk our lives every day to keep these stores stocked and clean. We’ve earned our breaks! Let’s send a message to Amazon and Whole Foods: these changes are unacceptable. If you’re a Whole Foods worker and you want to fight back, reach out to us. Together, we can hold Whole Foods accountable for its unfair policies. In Solidarity, Whole Worker and the Emergency Workplace Organizing Committee

  • Workers deserve to be treated with RESPECT
    We, students of University of California Santa Cruz continue to be in solidarity with AFSCME 3299 dining hall workers and student workers. Being a student at the University of California is a privilege we hold. While many of us are studying from home and the few are living on campus full time, workers continue making UCSC run. It has become increasingly clear that without students and workers on campus, the university does not feel like a university. While many of us have the privilege of staying safe at home, that is not the case for AFSCME 3299 workers. Workers continue to go to work and risk their safety during a pandemic. Many workers are part of communities disproportionately impacted by COVID-19. Essential workers already face the risk of working during a pandemic. On top of those risks, workers at UCSC Dining Halls have to go to an unsafe, toxic workplace environment created by their management. And when workers take back their power, they are faced with retaliation from management. Since he began his tenure as an Associate Director of Dining Administration at UCSC, Clint Jeffries has routinely failed to advocate for dining hall workers. One manager, Lilian Galdamez Mijano, routinely belittles AFSCME 3299 workers to the point of tears. She attacks the quality of their work and punishes all workers for small mistakes. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, students do not see these aggressions taking place in the Dining Halls; they are living far from campus, and even those students living on campus do not enter the dining halls. This diminished student presence has worsened a toxic work environment at UCSC dining halls. When workers ask Clint for support or request that he talk to Lilian about her problematic behaviors, they are met with disappointment. Clint unconditionally and consistently supports dining hall managers over the workers he is supposed to help and serve. Clint’s refusal to support AFSCME 3299 dining hall workers reflects UCSC’s failures to support students and workers, especially during a pandemic and financial crisis. We understand that these issues do not start nor end with Dining Hall management but extend to UC administration. Specifically, Barbara Greening and her anti-worker and anti-union attitudes when meeting. Despite her role within UC labor relations she routinely disregards workers' concerns, speaks over , belittles, and degrades them creating an even more hostile and discouraging environment. We know from lived experiences that what affects the worker affects the student. It is our responsibility to use our privilege as students to once again raise our voices and demand respect alongside AFSCME 3299 members. It is clear that the UC administration does not care about workers or their safety during a pandemic and the UC will only listen to our collective demands if we target their corporate greed. Clint Jeffries and management have failed to advocate for workers’ safety and thus students’ safety. We know that our care, safety, and well being is tied to community care, it is dependent upon students and workers coming together.

  • Target Workers Demand Hazard Pay - T2212
    Both the New York Times and ProPublica have written about the impact of COVID-19, reporting that in states where Black communities make up only a relatively small portion of the population, nearly half — if not majority — of all COVID-19 deaths are members of the Black community. Given that T2212 is located in a primarily working class, Black community, Target is responsible for the protection of both its employees and the community that it serves. If Target is truly dedicated to racial equality, then it must provide a minimum of $2 hazard pay to mitigate the extreme risk that its essential workers face on a daily basis at this location.
