  • Hops Burger Bar workers seek COVID-19 protections for the community
    After a one-day strike we delivered our list of demands. Two weeks later workers received a temporary COVID-19 plan of action. This win includes paid sick leave through the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). This act originally expired in January and was renewed again until March. We are hoping protections will be extended past March. Please continue to support us! It will take community pressure on management at Hops and throughout the city of Greensboro to make sure they follow through on meeting employees’ demands.

  • NBCUniversal: pay the migrant workers making your products in Thailand!
    NBCUniversal finally agreed to pay up the #Kanlayanee workers stitching their Despicable Me T shirts! This is the first time migrant workers in the Mae Sot area in Thailand receive full compensation for the wage theft they fight against. Thank you for your relentless support, we love international solidarity! Without the energy and work from people and organisations all around the world, this would not have been possible. For two years a group of Burmese migrant workers were illegally paid less than a dollar an hour, were forced to work unpaid overtime, and had their holiday pay withheld at the Kanlayanee factory in Mae Sot, Thailand. In Sept 2019, the Kanlayanee workers bravely spoke out to stop the labour abuses. A few weeks later, the factory suddenly closed, leaving them with nothing. They have been fighting for justice ever since; demanding that they receive the $100.000 usd they are legally owed for making products for four major global companies: Disney, Starbucks, NBCUniversal and Tesco Lotus - เทสโก้ โลตัส. The factory owner made sure they got blacklisted as a result, leaving them unable to find alternative work. What seems like nothing to these brands, means the world for the workers. With this compensation, they can repay debts, send money to their family back home in Myanmar and rebuild their lives.

  • Netflix: Extend paid parental leave policy to ALL employees
    After thousands of Netflix customers and employees joined this effort, Netflix has announced that it’s expanding its paid parental leave for hourly employees. Employees in the streaming (16 weeks), DVD (12 weeks), and customer service (14 weeks) will now all be getting fully paid parental leave where previously, none of the leave provided was fully paid. Additionally, the new policy will cover paternity leave and adoptions whereas previously only maternity leave was provided. This expanded leave time will make a big difference in the lives of hundreds of Netflix workers and their families. One customer service employee who joined this Coworker.org petition said she’s “ecstatic” about the news. Thank you to everyone who supported this effort! Our work isn’t finished. The new policy does not meet the full demands of this petition, so let’s keep the pressure on Netflix to continue to improve its leave policies. There is no need for a two-tiered leave policy for hourly and salaried workers. Everyone should be able to take time away from work to care for a newborn or loved one.

  • Ben & Jerry's: Stand Up For Farmworkers’ Rights
    On Tuesday October 3, farmworker leaders from Migrant Justice and the CEO of Ben & Jerry’s jointly signed the Milk with Dignity agreement. The legally-binding contract establishes Ben & Jerry’s as the first company in the dairy industry to implement the worker-driven human rights program. This momentous occasion marks the beginning of a new day for dairy, one that provides economic relief and support to struggling farm owners, in the form of a premium paid by Ben & Jerry’s, while ensuring dignity and respect for farmworkers.

  • 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!

  • 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.
