H&M workers deserve good schedules and free speech in the workplace without retaliation
Set the standard for retail companies across the state of California by adopting a Fair Workweek policy that gives workers power over their lives:
° Predictable Schedules - Having an advanced two weeks notice of our schedules gives us control back into our lives.
° Opportunity to Work - Having access to consistent and stable hours, so we don’t have to struggle to keep up with the cost of living.
° Healthy Schedules - No worker should have to work a late shift and have to work an opening shift the next morning without any rest time.
° Flexibility - Flexibility among our schedules where workers can have the right to make schedule request without the fear of retaliation and termination.
° Reinstate Nick back into his role at H&M with full back pay and an apology letter.
° Make a public promise to end all retaliation against workers and whistleblowers.
Why is this important?
In August 2019, H&M management terminated sales associate Nick Gallant after he began exposing safety violations in the workplace and started educating his co-workers on their rights under the new fair work week laws in San Francisco and Emeryville, California.
That’s why we need you to sign this petition and call on H&M to Bring Nick Back, to stop retaliating against workers, and to give all California H&M associates a Fair Workweek.
