• Revert Shift Times at LVO
    This change has caused unnecessary stress as some employees are now barely making it in on time or are forced to show up excessively early, and others post work obligations are also facing interference. The local community is dealing with a huge inconvenience since this change has heavily congested the roads surrounding the plant, in turn this has the potential to lead to an unsafe environment for its residents. By reverting the start times, the company would also be reinforcing its pledge to be a green facility by reducing unnecessary emissions as a result of the abundance of vehicles sitting at idle.

  • Nitrado Global Company Equality
    The friction between Nitrado and MCProHosting that has formed since the acquisition has caused great distress to the employees at MCProHosting. Many in the company have expressed that they feel as though MCProHosting is the "ugly duckling" of the three brands. We have been consistently told that "there is no Nitrado and MCProhosting, we are all Nitrado Global," but that sentiment seems to be lost when it comes to the equal and fair treatment of Nitrado Global employees who work under the MCProHosting brand. Due to the wages we are offered being below market rate, many employees find it difficult to pay their bills, and many full time employees that have been with the company for years have to take on second jobs or side-gigs to pay their bills. Employees have expressed fears regarding what changes to health insurance coverage will mean for them. For many, this means going without healthcare, or going into severe debt just to have their health taken care of. Restrictive PTO policies combined with severe short staffing lead employees to not take vacations or sick leave, and when they do use their time off, they often continue to work during those vacations or sick days. It is extremely rare to see someone at MCPH take vacation regularly, and even more rare to see them offline during that vacation. Multiple employees right now are on vacation and working. Short-staffing and high standards have caused the support team to feel as though they must work overtime. This traps them in a circumstance where they must choose between providing less-than-exemplary customer service or working beyond their hours and risking disciplinary action. This is a problem that could easily be remedied by staffing departments appropriately based on demand.

  • A Call for Travel Nurses to Negotiate against Unfair Practices
    Corporate will never grant these requests out of generosity, and agencies will not push for them unless we demand that they do. To bring about these changes, we need to negotiate as a collective-- effectively “boycotting" certain contracts, and being vocal with our recruiters about what we will not tolerate. Without this very basic organization, we will always be undercutting each other, always playing into the interests of the hospital owners and employers; but, Organized, we can make our market as pro-nurse as possible.

  • Facebook: Stop exploiting your workers
    It is the job of Facebook content moderators to try and make the platform safe. This means reviewing every post that is either reported by a user or flagged by Facebook’s automated tools from its 3 billion users. For context, around 130,000 images are uploaded to Facebook every minute. The work can be harrowing, with content moderators having to look at some of the worst material on the internet. This includes murder, gruesome violence, hate speech and the sexual exploitation of children. Outsourced content moderators don’t receive proper mental health support and many develop PTSD as a result of their experience. This year, TIME magazine (https://time.com/6147458/facebook-africa-content-moderation-employee-treatment/) revealed chilling abuse at Facebook's content moderation centre in Nairobi, Kenya. Workers reported exploitation and unlawful union-busting at the Nairobi office, run by Sama — the US company who Facebook use as its main provider of outsourced content moderation in Africa. For this harrowing and dangerous work, TIME revealed workers are paid as little as $2.20 per hour. Sign this petition today in solidarity with them and all Facebook content moderators around the world.

  • Taco Bell Pay
    This issue is very important to me because Taco Bell has been my dream job since I was six years old. This experience I’ve had with them is the worst out of my whole job history. There is a lady who has worked there for up to 23 years who does not get paid even close to enough. Me and the only other manager at my store get treated very poorly by our boss and staff with no way to get help. It’s hard to get people to apply and work there because of the pay, and it’s hard to even make a living with only $13 an hour as a cook and $15 as a manager. Any other stores around us pay up to $18 an hour for management with way less responsibility. Even if I can’t get the pay I would love to be able to help future employees of Taco Bell get the pay that is right for them, and to keep employees' and customers' experiences great!

  • Support Teamsters Local 743!
    The University of Chicago is the largest private sector employer on the South Side of Chicago. It is also an institution with a long history of anti-union and anti-worker activity; from refusing to bargain with the United Public Workers-CIO for not filing non-Communist affidavits in 1948, to refusing to bargain with the Student Library Employees Union in 2017, claiming they were “temporary” workers. To date, the University refuses to acknowledge Graduate Students United, despite encouraging the vote in 2017. This trend has continued during the pandemic. University administration unilaterally stripped away retirement benefits from workers, including frontline healthcare and essential service workers, while receiving tens of millions of dollars in federal pandemic aid. The past two years have shown that the University would be unable to offer its most basic services without the labor of its union workers. Yet these employees are typically the lowest compensated in a unit. Employees with decades of experience are making near minimum wage, while the University posts record endowment numbers. Many union workers are in understaffed departments, doing the work of multiple people, because of the University's history of devaluing workers. These employees made up a majority of “essential workers” required to work on site before vaccinations were available and during the Delta and Omicron case surges. Hundreds of these workers were infected by COVID and several are now permanently disabled. Yet, their benefits are far fewer than those offered to academic and administrative employees able to work from home, leaving them at much higher risk of exposure to COVID19 and less able to obtain and afford the needed treatment. These employees are often subject to rigid controls over their work spaces and hours, as well as surveillance and harsh discipline from supervisors and administrators. Every aspect of our community is affected when union workers are mistreated. Worker conditions are research and learning conditions, but their work is often invisible to the rest of the campus community. Teamsters 743 members provide us help in the student wellness clinics and in residence halls, they further the research mission of the University at the Library and at the UChicago Press, they do the clerical work that keeps many of our academic departments and Lab School running, and they even maintain the buildings we live in. This is labor that keeps this University functioning. The existing contract for Teamsters Local 743 has poverty wages at its lower pay scale, where hundreds of Teamster members are being left behind in an era of unprecedented inflation of the cost of living, housing, food, and gas that is not being matched with raises in wages. There is no clear path to a better living for them despite giving the University decades of service. Most of these workers are people of color living on the South Side of Chicago, a community that the University claims to support, except when it comes to paying them for their labor. The University of Chicago must provide the Teamsters with a fair contract with appropriate compensation through which its members can thrive. Take a solidarity pic with a UChicago Teamster! Post and tag #SupportUChicagoTeamsters.

  • Classify Samsung US Sales Experts As Employees
    This is a human rights issue. There are LGBTQ+ individuals who rely on Samsung US and iAdvize as the only place who will accept them. These people need to be protected. There are single parents who rely on Samsung US and iAdvize as their sole source of income. These people need to be protected. There are disabled individuals who rely on Samsung US and iAdvize as the only job that will allow them the flexibility they need. These people need to be protected. There are college students and dropouts who rely on Samsung US and iAdvize as the only job that will allow them to work from home or their dorm. These people need to be protected. We are human beings who just want to help customers pick out a new phone, television, refrigerator, or laptop. But we'd also like to be treated with respect and be paid a living wage while doing it. We don't want something radical, we want something equitable.

  • Protect Workers and Stop Sexual Harassment
    The issue of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior at Chili's is unacceptable, but it's also reflective of the entire restaurant industry, as a whole. We need to make a change for all future restaurant workers because no one should have to endure exploitation, sexual harassment, or bullying in the workplace.

  • 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.
