• Goodness can only grow in a fair work environment
    Supporting a coworker's petition can be intimidating, but it’s often the only path to workplace change. With more and more employees supporting a campaign, an employer’s ability to deny the demands of the petition becomes more difficult. Firing an employee covered by the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA) for signing a petition to improve workplace conditions is illegal under section 8(a) (3) NLRA. The NLRA provides that an employer “may not, by reason of reason, terminate an employee or take any other disciplinary action against the employee for the exercise of the employee’s legal right to improve the conditions of the workplace.”

  • Addressing Critical Payroll Issues At Telus
    The ongoing payroll issues at Telus are not merely administrative glitches; they are eroding the fundamental trust between the company's management and its dedicated employees. Week after week, the frustration intensifies as affected employees grapple with the fallout of negative paychecks, underpayments, and persistent broken promises. This issue is crucial because it extends beyond financial discrepancies – it's about the erosion of morale and confidence within the workforce. The toll on employees' trust is reaching a critical point, impacting their overall job satisfaction and commitment to the company. The importance of resolving these payroll issues promptly cannot be overstated; failure to do so risks a significant decline in employee morale, productivity, and the overall health of the employer-employee relationship.

  • Solidarity with Entertainment Workers
    Working in Hollywood may seem like a glamorous life with fancy movie premiers, big fame and even bigger paychecks. But for many in the industry this is far from reality. The majority of working actors, voice actors and others on your favorite movies and shows are getting paid so little to perform that they struggle to pay for basic necessities. Streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+ dominate the entertainment industry and these new business models push out actors who just want to make a living. With “traditional” entertainment media like cable, actors would continue to receive significant payout from shows and movies they’ve been in that play as reruns – these are known in the industry as “residuals.” But with the advent of streaming services, residual pay has dwindled so much that even actors on some of the most internationally acclaimed shows are unable to live a normal life. An actor from Netflix’s Emmy-Award winning show Orange is the New Black shared on social media that she earned only $27.00 in residuals from the show. Streaming has also meant shorter seasons of television shows, and longer breaks in between seasons making it difficult for actors and entertainers to have steady income. At any given time, unemployment among professional entertainers is around 90%. Just like striking writers, actors are fighting back against new technologies like AI that threaten to manipulate their image, including giving studios access to their “digital likeness” that could be used without their consent – and without compensation – forever. With the writers and actors on strike for the first time in decades, this is a flash point for the entertainment industry. As fans and workers ourselves, it’s important we stand up for the artists whose work we love. Sign the petition to stand in solidarity with the SAG-AFTRA union members and demand that production companies come to a fair agreement.

  • Justice for Insomnia Cookies Workers
    It is unfair for employers to flagrantly ignore labor laws and best practices, at the expense of workers who just want to support their families. Even if you don't work at Insomnia Cookies, you're still vulnerable to this kind of abuse in the workplace. If we stand in solidarity we can show all of our bosses how strong we are together. Please consider signing in support of our demands

  • Stand with the Writers Guild of America
    With streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+ growing in popularity, the television production industry has seen huge growth over the past decade – but compensation for writers hasn’t kept up. Some writers are saying it’s become difficult to sustain a career as a writer in Hollywood and even harder for junior writers to break into the industry. But the strike of more than 11,000 WGA members is about more than just fair pay. They’re fighting back against a system full of exploitation and increasingly tough working conditions. Specifically they want better residual pay – or royalties for reruns. Before streaming services existed, writers would be paid a percentage of revenue every time their work was shown on television. Streaming has made it so writers don’t receive this pay since users can watch these platforms whenever they want and don’t need to wait for a rerun. Writers are also fighting back against a new threat: the use of AI-powered tools like ChatGPT in writers rooms. Union members don’t want studios to dismiss a writer's contributions – and thus their compensation – by only crediting AI as the author of scripts or as source material. The strike means that all tv production in Hollywood has come to a grinding halt – this has serious implications for the entire industry if the worker’s demands aren’t met. Our favorite shows, including live late night comedy shows, have already stopped production. As fans of their work, we are a crucial part of this moment – it’s important we support the writer’s who create the content we love to watch. Sign the petition to stand in solidarity with the WGA union members and demand that production companies come to a fair agreement.

  • Uber Drivers Demand Safety on The Job, Higher Wages & an End to Unfair Terminations
    Uber marked a record $31.8 billion in revenue in 2022 and has the resources to make these changes. Uber is responsible for the dangerous conditions we are facing on the job, and Uber is responsible for the policies that make it hard to protect ourselves from these conditions. According to “Driving Danger,” a new report from the Strategic Organizing Center, nearly three quarters of Black, indigenous and people of color driving rideshare and responding to a national survey reported that they accepted rides they sensed were potentially dangerous to them for fear of being deactivated for bad customer reviews (2). Uber undermines our safety when they penalize us for declining rides we feel could put us at risk. By keeping our pay low, Uber forces us to work long hours, taking ride after ride, just to make ends meet. By paying us more for our time and our labor, Uber can make it easier to protect ourselves on the job, and make the risks we face everyday feel more worth taking. Uber’s policies are hurting drivers and passengers alike. When drivers have better protections, riders will be safer, too. When drivers know what we earn from each drive, riders will know what cut Uber is taking from each drive. (1) - https://www.nytimes.com/2023/02/08/business/uber-revenue.html (2) - https://thesoc.org/what-we-do/driving-danger/ ---- Los conductores de Uber demandan seguridad en el trabajo, sueldos más altos y un final a los despidos injustos Mientras Uber se prepara para celebrar un récord de ganancias en su reunión anual de accionistas del 20231, conductores de viaje compartido en el país se están uniendo para actuar directamente y demandar que Uber mejore la seguridad al terminar con los despidos injustos de conductores y pagando a los conductores una tarifa justa por nuestro trabajo. Mientras nosotros luchamos para sobrevivir, estamos siendo amenazados, asaltados, robados o peor. Uber nos fuerza a tomar los riesgos y costos involucrados en el trabajo del viaje compartido. Nosotros pagamos por nuestros autos, gasolina, teléfonos, mantenimientos y reparaciones y la mayoría de los conductores que son heridos en el trabajo deben cubrir todos sus gastos médicos de sus propios bolsillos. Mientras tanto, Uber no ha tomado suficientes medidas para mantenernos seguros mientras hacemos nuestros trabajos. Los bajos sueldos y la constante amenaza de despido nos empujan a trabajar en condiciones de trabajo inseguras. Uber puede desactivar nuestras cuentas, despidiéndonos de inmediato, según las quejas infundadas de los clientes o por ser selectivos al momento de aceptar viajes. La posibilidad de perder nuestros trabajos, con pocos recursos para recuperarlos, nos hacen aceptar viajes que consideramos inseguros y servir a pasajeros que pueden ponernos en riesgo para poder mantener a nuestras familias. Al mismo tiempo, muchos de nosotros vemos que Uber está tomando una porción cada vez más grande de nuestras tarifas. Muchos de nosotros estamos ganando sueldos mucho menores de los mínimos locales y estatales e incluso menores a un sueldo apto para vivir, mientras que Uber está reportando ganancias récord. Sin importar dónde vivimos o dónde conducimos, todos estamos enfrentando los mismos problemas que Uber podría resolver hoy, si quisiera hacerlo. Por eso estamos demandando lo siguiente: -Sueldos aumentados para todos los conductores y un límite en la parte de ganancias de Uber de nuestras tarifas. -Transparencia sobre la compensación y cuánto de nuestras tarifas Uber se está quedando. -Un proceso de despido “justo” que nos dé el derecho de saber por qué estamos sufriendo la desactivación y el derecho a un proceso de apelación justo y consistente. -Una actualización de las políticas de Uber para prevenir que los pasajeros utilicen nombres falsos e imposibles de rastrear y dar a los conductores el derecho a cancelar o rechazar viajes cuando nos sentimos inseguros, sin castigo alguno. Uber registró un récord de $31.8 billones de dólares en ingresos en el 2022 y tiene los recursos para realizar estos cambios. Uber es responsable por las condiciones peligrosas que estamos enfrentando en el trabajo y Uber es responsable por las políticas que dificultan protegernos a nosotros mismos de estas condiciones. Según “Driving Danger”, un nuevo reporte de Strategic Organizing Center, casi tres cuartos de afroamericanos, indígenas o personas de color conduciendo en viajes compartidos y que respondieron a una encuesta nacional, reportaron que aceptaron viajes que sintieron que eran potencialmente peligrosos para ellos por temor a ser desactivados por malas reseñas de los clientes2. Uber socava nuestra seguridad cuando nos penaliza por rechazar viajes que sentimos que pueden ponernos en riesgo. Al mantener baja nuestra paga, Uber nos fuerza a trabajar largas horas, tomando viaje tras viaje, solo para poder sobrevivir. Al pagarnos más por nuestro tiempo y nuestro trabajo, Uber facilitaría que pudiéramos protegernos a nosotros mismos en el trabajo y haría que valiera más la pena enfrentar los riesgos que enfrentamos a diario. Las políticas de Uber están lastimando a los conductores y a los pasajeros. Cuando los conductores tengan mejor protección, los pasajeros también estarán más seguros. Cuando los conductores sepan lo que ganamos de cada viaje, los pasajeros sabrán la parte que se lleva Uber de cada viaje.

  • Delta, Show the Difference…
    With the rising cost of living and inflation in the world, we need to be on-top of the industrial scale and stay on-top. We won the JD Power award for Inflight IFS during the hardest time in the aviation industry. We kept our company’s head above water and took leave and helped our company turn record profits the most we have seen in years. This profit year was during space positive travel commuting periods which helped new hires get to work and keep the operation running. Space positive commuting helps drastically, especially in those cities/bases that new hires can’t afford to live and move into… We Delta Flight Attendants spend the most time with our HVC’s and customers.. we are the face of Delta… So, Help us Keep Delta My Delta, and Keep Delta the only Flight Attendant Non Union US Airline showing the world and aviation industry the DELTA DIFFERENCE!!!
