  • Coffee is Not Essential
    As Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf continues to operate under the pretense that we are aiding the community by providing food and beverage, but they are in fact only endangering their employees and customers. Coffee bean is taking additional steps to encourage cleanliness and sanitation, however this does not eliminate all possibility of not catching COVID-19. The virus stays in the air and on surfaces for up to 14 days. As many medical professionals are being given a quick easy way to grab coffee, it is also putting the employees at risk as well as any guests that it could be transferred to.

  • All HCA hospitals need proper PPE for healthcare worker safety
    Low supplies of PPE have caused the hospitals to employ unsafe practices for the employees caring for patients. We are being asked to reuse masks and not use the proper level of PPE due to short supply. It is the corporation’s responsibility to react to this shortage and employ whatever means necessary to ensure that its employees’ safety remains a priority. Employees should not have to try to navigate what is a safe alternative to the known gold standard of personal Protective Equipment during this global pandemic. If we are not provided with the necessary equipment to stay safe, we will not be able to continue to care for the patients in our community that depend on us. HCA needs to use its vast resources to secure proper PPE for all of its employees and medical staff members.

  • IWG ACT NOW: Close your Centres! (Regus, Spaces, HQ & other IWG centres)
    After the government announcement on the 23rd of March, unprecedented measures were announced that no one should be leaving their homes unless for exercise, essential travels, shopping or if they are Key Workers going to work. Today, IWG centres remains open; Profiteering from companies during this global pandemic whilst asking their landlord for a 3 months grace period. IWG has not only decided to profit before staff’s welfare, they also gone against their Exceptional Service Statement” – “We exist to help modern, ambitious business work where, when and how they want.” – www.regus.com. During this pandemic, small & medium size companies are making loss and struggling financially whilst locked into a long-term contract unable to leave with no relief or discounts. IWG employees are also forced to decide between working, or to taking holiday leave to get paid. Despite the UK government announcing that they will cover 80% salaries for those who must stay home. IWG employees are not key workers and should be forced to stay home. IWG centres are open 24/7 for members with private office spaces, with the front help-desk open Monday-Friday 8am to 6pm. During this pandemic, IWG can close their front help-desk and centres, but leaving it open to clients who are key-workers which is showing their support to key-workers during these tough times. We ask that IWG reconsiders their situation and provide support to their employees and clients.

  • HSS Inc. Must Provide Sick Pay for All Employees
    HSS security officers are working at the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic. As essential personnel working in hospital and airport settings, we run a higher risk of contracting the virus compared to the general public. Infection is not a maybe, it is an inevitability for a percentage of our officers. HSS Inc. says they will pay 2/3 of wages for lost time should any employee contract and PROVE they contracted COVID-19 while on the job, an admittedly difficult task. Alternatively, full-time employees of over a year have access to Paid Catastrophic Leave should they fall ill with the virus. This means part-time employees as well as full-time employees with less than a consecutive year working with HSS will only receive UNPAID medical leave for a COVID-19 infection which they cannot definitively prove was contracted at work. This is not enough. HSS quotes, "security services are critical to the health and wellbeing of both patients and first responders." Our officers need to know they will be compensated for time spent in quarantine regardless of where or how we contract the virus and without stipulations about full-time status or length of time served with HSS. Protecting our clients and our teams from exposure to COVID-19 by quarantining infected individuals is a vital public service⁠—HSS Inc. has an obligation to remove any obstacle that would prevent us from doing so. In order to guarantee that HSS officers do the right thing and self-quarantine when they suspect they have the virus, HSS Inc. must provide sick pay for all the hardworking people who make up this company for the duration of their quarantine. Refusing to do so is an unconscionable disregard for the safety of these employees and the clients they serve.

  • Kim Bartmann: Pay Us What You Owe Us
    On Monday, March 16th, in response to the spread of COVID-19, Kim Bartmann closed the seven restaurants she owns in the Twin Cities, laying off all workers. On March 19th, we, the employees of the Bartmann group, were notified that our checks for the week prior to this closure, wages we had already earned, would not be available. Furthermore, a time and date when these checks would be made available was not given. We deserve our earned wages, especially in a time when so many of us are unable to work, and are struggling to make ends meet. We, the employees of Barbette, Pat’s Tap, Red Stag Supperclub, Tiny Diner, Book Club, Trapeze and Gigi’s Cafe, demand that Kim Bartmann and the Bartmann Group pay us our earned wages. As a result of not making payroll, Kim Bartmann is withholding both our hourly wages and our tips from last week's pay period, this is theft and we are demanding that Kim Bartmann turn over these wages. For those of us who have had checks bounce from previous pay periods, we demand that Kim Bartmann make these wages available immediately. Under Minnesota Statutes § 181.13, we are entitled to receive all of our final wages within 24 hours of this demand. Failure to provide final wages within 24 hours of this demand may result in a penalty of up to 15 days of additional wages. In her email, Kim Bartmann strongly urged all of us to apply for unemployment, which most of us have now done. But, unemployment is not a substitute for stolen wages and tips AND many immigrant workers may be ineligible for unemployment benefits. In order to ensure that we and our communities can pay for food, medical needs and other basic necessities, we are calling on the State of Minnesota to enact a policy for 15 days of Emergency Paid Time Off paid for by employers and provided to all workers, no exceptions, who have to miss work (including retroactively covering days that have already been lost) due to the coronavirus pandemic for any reason, be it for a temporary job shut down, personally getting sick, caring for kids when schools shut down, or any other related reason. The 15 days should be in addition to whatever benefits workers already have in their workplace. To avoid impacting small businesses, we are calling on the state to implement a separate tax on the largest businesses in the state including Amazon, U.S. Bank, Wells Fargo, Target, Ecolab and others, and small to medium sized businesses can apply for a tax credit equal to 100% of the paid sick leave benefit they have paid out. If workers have to miss more than 15 days for any reason related to the crisis, they should be able to access unemployment insurance benefits immediately without counting the benefit against the employer's experience rating, and with a moratorium on employer challenges during the pandemic. Finally, we remind the Bartmann Group that it is against federal law to retaliate against an employee for making a discrimination or wage-related complaint. This includes discharging, penalizing, disciplining or in any other manner discriminating against workers for this activity. 29 U.S.C. § 215(a)(3). Most of us, as bartenders, cooks, dishwashers, and servers in the industry, live from paycheck to paycheck. These paychecks are for hours ALREADY worked during a time that should have been considered hazardous to our health, exposing us to large amounts of people, and we deserve to be paid. We should not have to choose between paying for essential food, rent and medical supplies and compromising social solidarity (social distancing) or exposing ourselves to further risks.

  • More pay for healthcare employees
    As many healthcare workers are putting their lives at risk due to the coronavirus and are not getting a single penny of appreciation. They are the most important people that we need during this pandemic. Employees in healthcare are the most at risk than any other job and deserve to be payed hazardous pay for their hard work and dedication. The moral thing to do would be to pay ALL healthcare employees more during this crisis.
