  • #ThePriceOfRetail for workers during the holidays
    The holiday season is fast approaching and as much as we love to catch that major sale, we should also pay attention to some of the bad practices of retail employers: - excessively longer shifts than normal (12 hours +), with minimal breaks; - mandatory “Black Out” days (typically running from Nov. 1 through Jan. 2), in which employees cannot request time off; - typically no guaranteed incentives or time and a half pay for holiday work; - "Clopenings" (working late on Thanksgiving and early on Black Friday), sometimes with as little as 5-6 hours in between shifts; and - mandatory overnight shifts for everyone, regardless of position. Due to these practices, retail workers experience: - limited time with their families or time to prepare for the holidays; - exhaustion and higher incidents of injury due to lack of sleep and overexertion; - over-reliance on support networks and excessive childcare costs; and - low morale due to having no say and experiencing regular disrespect. Retail workers deserve better, so we the undersigned demand that employers: - prioritize training for employees on their basic rights as workers in NYC/NYS; - provide new incentives for workers during the holidays, like time and a half pay, extra breaks on 10+ hour days and/or comp time for future use; - an option for workers to have a choice to work the holidays instead of being forced to do so; and - adhere to the current city & state laws that help retail workers strive toward more balanced lives.

  • Hey Google: Stop Retaliation and Scare Tactics Against Workers
    What has happened to many Googlers recently can happen to any of us. Google is blatantly and illegally using its power to retaliate against those who speak out about unethical projects and workplace issues like discrimination and harassment. And in many instances it’s using its sham of an HR investigation process to hide its activities and harass whistleblowers. Here are stories of Google contingent and full-time employees who have recently been retaliated against: [1] Claire Stapleton and Meredith Whittaker were pushed out of Google for organizing the Women's March in response to unchecked sexual harassment by Google executives: http://www.pbs.org/wnet/amanpour-and-company/video/claire-stapleton-and-meredith-whittaker-google-walkouts-htzi/ [2] The Thanksgiving Four were fired under false claims for protesting unethical projects at Google: https://www.bbc.com/news/technology-50554931 [3] Chelsey Glasson witnessed and experienced pregnancy discrimination, and was retaliated against for reporting the discrimination: https://www.fastcompany.com/90414895/exclusive-i-left-google-because-of-pregnancy-discrimination [4] Henry Ramirez & Jorge Nelson, two contingent workers in Google UK, were terminated for protesting poor working conditions: https://caiwu.org.uk/wp/google/ [5] Other stories can be found here: https://medium.com/@GoogleWalkout/retaliation-at-google-3df5674bc725 PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION TO SHOW GOOGLE THAT YOU STAND WITH THE WORKERS ABOVE WHO HAVE BEEN RETALIATED AGAINST AND THAT SUCH BEHAVIOR WON’T BE TOLERATED.
