• NACCHO management: recognize our union!
    For years staff at the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) have been frustrated with the lack of transparency, inconsistencies in policies and procedures, and disparities in job responsibilities, salaries, and hours across like positions from management. The COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated our frustration. At this time, an overwhelming majority of staff at NACCHO have decided to form a union with the Office and Professional Employees International Union (OPEIU) Local 2. We believe that increasing opportunities for staff input in decision-making, open and transparent communication between employees and management, and acknowledging the importance of racial and ethnic equity across the organization will ensure that staff, and thus NACCHO, will be able to harness our full potential and advance our mission together. By agreeing to voluntarily recognize our union, Management at NACCHO can demonstrate with meaningful concrete action to our staff, the members we serve in nearly 3000 local health departments, and the public health community as a whole that NACCHO is an organization where staff are respected, valued, and encouraged to stay and work into the long future. We ask that you join us in asking CEO Lori Tremmel Freeman and the NACCHO Management team to respect the wishes of NACCHO staff by voluntarily recognizing our union by signing our petition!

  • Food service workers deserve better! We work hard to feed ESU students. Honor our contract!
    We are the hardworking men and women who feed students day-in and day-out at East Stroudsburg University. We recently negotiated a union contract that ensures we are paid fairly, treated with respect and provided with benefits that help us take care of our families. We can't allow these protections to be threatened by the PA State System of Higher Education's (PASSHE) merger of the food service operations at ESU with those at Bloomsburg University, Lock Haven University, Kutztown University, Cheyney University, Mansfield University and potentially Millersville University. Starting next academic year (2021-22), one food service contractor will feed students at all six campuses under one agreement. Food service companies have submitted their bids now. The winning company will be chosen this winter. We call on Interim President Long and Chancellor Greenstein to demand that the winning company honor our existing union contract as well as the contracts of our union brothers and sisters at Lock Haven, Bloomsburg, Millersville, Cheyney and Mansfield. The winning company should also grant workers at Kutztown University a fair process for joining a union so that they too can negotiate for fair wages, benefits and working conditions. We are prepared to take action if this arrangement threatens our union contract. We are well aware of how unfairly many nonunion food service workers are treated and how poorly they are compensated. We will do whatever it takes to preserve the fair treatment, pay and respect we have fought for!

  • Increase base pay & offer hazard pay to gig workers. Company profits must be transparent.
    No one should profit from the pandemic. Since the start of the pandemic all incentives and bonuses that had been offered regularly prior to the virus disappeared while business for these companies dramatically increased. These companies should not be allowed to exploit workers by consistently excusing themselves from any responsibility to these workers via the "independent contractor" classification.

  • Pay Us What You Owe Us, C2 Logistics!
    C2 Logistics solutions has gotten away with wage theft and unjust firings for too long now! They have lied to and ripped off working families across the country! Most recently they withheld tens of thousands of dollars from over 75 families by not paying workers on time or only paying part of what was owed. Some workers were not paid for 4 weeks and are still waiting on money owed. All while working in often unsafe conditions without proper permits and inspections!

  • Disney and NBCUniversal: pay the migrant workers making your products!
    Disney and NBCUniversal have a responsibility to ensure workers’ rights are respected in their supply chains. They must ensure we receive all the money we are owed for making their products, and their profits. The Mae Sot region of Thailand is known to be 'a black hole' in the Thai garment industry, where labour rights violations are common place, and factories routinely take advantage of visa dependent migrant workers. If we win, this can set an important precedent for the future – that brands can’t just walk away, proving the power of collective worker action and global solidarity to ensure justice, even in the darkest corners of the garment industry.

  • Home Chef overworking, underpaying, and discriminating
    Employees working in this company are being overlooked, discriminated, underpaid and overworked to the point where individuals get unhealthy. Employees no longer feel valued & get wrongfully terminated. Not a safe work environment.

  • Let’s Get a Gender Neutral Hair Policy!
    These “policies” are sexist and out of date. Publix is losing good employees based on store manager preference. By leaving it up to managers, that leaves room for discrimination. Publix already allows long hair at its Greenwise Markets as well as some stores in Charlotte. Let’s make the hair policy gender neutral!

  • Minimum Wage for TCF Food Runners/Bussers
    This is an issue worth fighting for. Although servers take turns food running, it is not worth our time to make server wage and then a small 1% of the servers' sales during these shifts. Food runners are being pulled to help run to-gos. Food runners and bussers are running around the entire shift and are what makes a shift run smoothly. We aren't fighting for a raise or promotion, just minimum wage because we work hard and deserve that. Other restaurants do it.

  • Hazard pay for Nurses and CNAs
    Nurses and CNAs are being put in a dangerous position, being exposed to Covid19. Corporate can afford to give office workers hazard pay but not the actual nurses and CNAs being exposed.

  • Give Sex Workers a Voice on OnlyFans!
    Since the Covid-19 pandemic, many sex workers have relied heavily on OnlyFans to make a living, and in so doing, have helped to accelerate the growth of the platform and increase the profits of the company overall. In response to this surge in growth and some of the complications that have come with it, the platform has introduced new policies that have hurt these workers’ ability to make the money they need to survive, thus compromising their quality of life. The recent decision to lower the amount of money creators can receive via tips and pay-to-view messages has resulted in lost income for many. OnlyFans has also failed to address existing issues, such as the discrimination its creators face on other platforms, which limits their ability to self-promote. While sex workers do not account for the whole of OnlyFans’ creator base, they constitute a significant presence on the platform and notably played a meaningful role in launching the platform into the public consciousness. Unfortunately, due to societal stigma, they are also a uniquely vulnerable population--and this stigma is further compounded for BIPOC and trans workers, who are disproportionately impacted by policies that hinder their ability to work. We believe that as long as OnlyFans continues to profit off the labor of these creators, the company also has a responsibility to protect them and to craft its policies in ways that do not disproportionately penalize, censor, or otherwise interfere with their ability to work and survive.

  • Raise Starbucks Pay to $15 an Hour
    As the largest coffee chain in the world, Starbucks should treat employees above average -- especially since the company is known for taking care of employees. We are a branded coffee name yet employees pay are comparable to coffee houses a fraction of the size of Starbucks. Starbucks is a multibillion dollar company, but it's been reported that it pays an effective tax rate of zero, yet is still unable to pay livable wages to its employees. We have been continually working throughout the pandemic, but the pay is not a livable wage starting at $12 an hour. During the COVID-19 pandemic, there have been many new rules/regulations and restraints implemented. We have new work every day, but we're not seeing a return for that work. At my location, for example, we have a great crew, but morale is starting to go down with many employees feeling as if their work is unappreciated. With the morales of employees going down, we are seeing a direct correlation to our customer connection score (the happiness of our customers). Customers are feeling less like they have a 3rd place, and more like they are just getting rushed thru with less smiles because there is so much more going on behind the bar. Employees deserve to feel they can handle their bills and what ever else they need while working full time at any job, but especially a company as large and profitable as Starbucks.
