  • Sick leave for Starbucks Partners
    On January 24, 2018, Starbucks announced a new policy related to sick leave: "A new Partner and Family Sick Time benefit will be available to all eligible U.S. partners, which will allow partners to accrue paid sick time based on hours worked and then use them if they or a family member needs care. When this benefit goes into effect this year, Sick Time will accrue at a rate of one hour for every 30 hours worked, thus a partner working 23 hours a week can expect to accrue approximately five days of sick time benefit over the course of one year." https://news.starbucks.com/press-releases/starbucks-announces-new-investments-in-paid-leave-wage

  • Walmart: Stop Cutting Our Hours!
    After Associates delivered more than 20,000 petition signatures to dozens of stores around the country, Walmart implemented a new process for scheduling shifts. Associates from stores around the U.S. are reporting that when they clock in for a shift, a new screen asks them if they would like more hours. We're told managers are being instructed to provide Associates with more hours when requested. This is a major victory for Walmart Associates who've spent years speaking out about Walmart's scheduling practices, which left many workers without enough hours to pay their bills.

  • Starbucks: Dads need time to bond with their babies too!
    WE WON! Starbucks announced on January 24, 2018 that it is finally going to offer paid parental leave to all employees. Partners will have some protected, paid time to welcome new children to their lives. Starbucks is only one company, but it’s a leader and many other companies follow its example when it comes to how to treat employees. Starbucks is still giving its corporate executives MUCH more parental leave than it gives everyone else (corporate moms still get 3x the leave as baristas, and corporate dads get 2x more) but now, nobody is left out.

  • Starbucks: Extend paid parental leave policy to ALL employees
    WE WON! Starbucks announced on January 24, 2018 that it is finally going to offer paid parental leave to all employees. I am so full of love and happiness to know that partners like me will have some protected, paid time to welcome new children to their lives. Starbucks is only one company, but it’s a leader and many other companies follow its example when it comes to how to treat employees. Starbucks is still giving its corporate executives MUCH more parental leave than it gives everyone else (corporate moms still get 3x the leave as baristas, and corporate dads get 2x more) but now, nobody is left out.

  • KEEN: Your employees deserve paid parental leave
    UPDATE: After thousands of customers and employees joined this campaign, KEEN Footwear announced in November 2015 that it will now provide four weeks of paid parental leave to all new parents -- including moms, dads and parents of adopted children. That’s a big improvement from only six weeks of short term disability at 60% just for new moms. This additional paid leave means that many workers will be able to spend more time caring for their families. Thank you to all who have joined the campaign! At the same time, KEEN is a company that wants to stay competitive and can do more. We asked the company to provide eight weeks of paid leave because many of KEEN’s competitors offer at least that much. Even city employees in Portland, where KEEN is headquartered, now receive more paid parental leave than KEEN will offer. Please continue to join the campaign to show support for an even more generous policy!
