• DEMANDS FROM WORKERS AT MADISON METRO TRANSIT
    The coronavirus pandemic has thrown the City and our lives into a full-blown crisis. The City of Madison has recommended work from home for its professional employees but is maintaining essential services. This is a hazard situation. People need essential services like transit, groceries, and medical care. The workers providing these services are having our health and our families’ health at risk every time we walk through the door. We keep this city running by moving people, driving doctors, nurses and patients, grocery store clerks and shoppers. We are on the frontline and we are being asked to hold this city together. Without us, many will not get what they need to survive. We’re being asked to be on the frontlines but we’re not being treated like the emergency workers we’re told we are. Morale is not good.

  • Demand Spec's Give Employees PTO or Switch to Curbside Pick-up Only
    Spec's corporate num: (888) 526-8787 E-mail: [email protected] Closing Spec's or at the minimum switching to curb-side pick up during this pandemic of the coronavirus is crucial. This is a respiratory virus, and the only way to stop the spread of the virus is to stay away from others. The CDC has advised all non-essential businesses to close to contain and slow the spread of the virus. Spec's is NOT an essential business and demanding employees stay at work during this time is negligent and detrimental to workers, customers, managers, and the public. Some Spec's branches have even disregarded directives from the management of the shopping centers they are located in to decrease hours, keeping regular store hours (Mon. - Sat. 10am - 9pm) and not limiting customer interactions whatsoever. Managers refuse to close during a time of increased profit, when customers who have the benefit of working from home are stocking up on non-essential items like fine wines and cheeses at the expense of Spec's employees and the general public. Although washing your hands frequently, limiting customers (which Spec's is not doing), and disinfecting the store is helpful, that will NOT prevent the spread of coronavirus. At this point, there is no way to know who has the coronavirus, due to the limited number of tests. Suspending all business hours, until further notice, while continuing to pay both hourly, and salary workers is absolutely necessary. At minimum, allow employees who consent to stay on to work pick-up orders only, limiting interaction to putting together phone orders and ID/age checks when customers pick up. Employees and customers may display no symptoms while still being able to transmit the virus to others. Employees have to go home to their families who may be immunocompromised, have asthma, diabetes, or other conditions that make them more severely impacted by illness. By going to work, they are increasing the risk of themselves, their family, and customers of catching the virus. Instead of waiting until an employee shows symptoms of the virus, closing all stores would prevent its' further spread. In the meantime, other measures should be taken to disinfect employee work spaces and limit customer interaction to a minimum.

  • Cascadia Behavioral Health Workers deserve hazard pay
    According to the UN, hazard pay is “a form of compensation granted to staff members who have been requested to remain and report for work in duty stations where very hazardous conditions, such as war or active hostilities, prevailed and where the evacuation of families and nonessential staff had taken place.” Cascadia proudly employees elderly and disabled workers, two demographics that are most at risk for becoming critically ill from COVID-19. Yet those workers can’t afford to avoid work and keep themselves safe. Many Cascadia Behavioral Health workers are worried and scared that during these hard times of a pandemic that they or their families will likely contract COVID-19 due to being in direct care with our patients during their shifts without proper PPE to otherwise protect them. Thus Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare providing their employees with hazard pay to compensate them for their extra work and exposure to COVID-19. Hazard pay provides security, comfort, and increased morale knowing our company has our backs.

  • GameStop Needs To Suspend All Business Until Further Notice
    Closing GameStop, during this pandemic of the coronavirus, is crucial. This is a respiratory virus, and the only way to stop the spread of the virus is to stay away from others. The CDC has continually emplored all people and businesses to close to contain and slow the spread of the virus. Although washing your hands frequently, limiting customers, and disinfecting the store is helpful, that will not prevent the spread of coronavirus. Both customers AND employees are at risk of catching and spreading the virus. At this point, there is no way to know who has the coronavirus, due to the limited number of tests. Suspending all business hours, until further notice, WHILE continuing to pay both hourly, and salary workers would be beneficial to both customers & partners. Employees and Customers can display no symptoms while still being able to transmit the virus to others. Employees have to go home to their families who may be immunocompromised, and by going to work, they are increasing the risk of themselves or their family catching the virus. Instead of waiting until an employee has been exposed or catches the virus, closing all stores would prevent anyone from getting the virus. At this current time, employees are on the frontlines, potentially being exposed and spreading the virus unknowingly. Positive relationships with the employer and feeling supported by the employer are the top markers of employee satisfaction. Employee satisfaction is the number one factor in business success. You must make the right choice. The moral thing to do would be to suspend business while paying partners until there is a grip on the virus.

  • Join other retailers and do more for your employees and more for social distancing
    Retail pharmacy employees may not be out on the emergency front lines risking health with every patient that enters, such as hospitals and other first responders but as a health care provider pharmacies will remain open and still putting themselves at risks. As everything else is closing around us people will flock to CVS to stock up on necessities, pick up their medications or even just as an excuse to leave the house. As a leading health care provider CVS should be setting the standard for what pharmacies should be doing and how they should be approaching the social distancing aspect while still providing excellent care to both it's customers and employees.

  • PetPeople needs hazard pay now!
    We are exposing ourselves (and our loved ones) to COVID-19. We aren’t being paid for the extra work we’re doing or the risk we’re undertaking. We are terrified. We need our company to have our back by introducing hazard pay at the rate of time and a half, plus guaranteeing forced closure pay. Workers who are typically scheduled a certain number of hours per week need to be guaranteed that if their store closes, they will continue receiving pay equal to their average scheduled wages. For example, someone scheduled full time would receive a biweekly check totalling how much they would earn for 70 hours of work — that is two weeks of 40-hours, minus ten 1-hour lunch breaks through those two weeks. Why is this important? According to the UN, hazard pay is “a form of compensation granted to staff members who have been requested to remain and report for work in duty stations where very hazardous conditions, such as war or active hostilities, prevailed and where the evacuation of families and nonessential staff had taken place.” We are in the middle of a global crisis. PetPeople — and any necessity supply stores at large — are ensuring our communities can safely and comfortably quarantine/self-isolate. But the workers stocking the shelves have not received any sort of security from PetPeople, that we can be compensated for the essential service we are providing. PetPeople is telling us to stay home if we have a fever. That is insufficient — it requires workers to work until they get sick before they can receive any compensation for putting their lives in danger, and it does nothing to answer concerns of part-time or new team members who don’t qualify for medical insurance should they become ill. Retail grocery/necessity stores and hospitals are on the frontlines right now, but retail workers don’t have access to the same precautions and resources as hospital workers. Hazard pay and guaranteed closure pay provides security, comfort, and increased morale knowing our company has our backs.
