  • 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.

  • Trader Joe’s: Crew needs hazard pay now!
    We won, in a way. While Trader Joe's still refuses to provide hazard pay to the thousands of workers who are putting ourselves on the front lines of a global pandemic, our petition raised awareness among our coworkers of the power of collective action. It appears we also may have inspired other grocery workers to petition their companies to provide hazard pay, many of which have been successful. Sadly, Trader Joe's is hoping that maintaining an image of compassion will excuse the company from having to tangibly act with compassion. The company used the existence of this petition to lie to workers, telling them it was a trick to get people to sign their name to the union effort. That is so emphatically untrue. Telling crew that to scare them is a cut and clear Unfair Labor Practice violation. Their attempt to union-bust as we cry out for help amid a global health crisis makes it clearer than ever where corporate's priorities lie – and the work we need to do to get them to act right. Our win is not because Trader Joe's is providing its workers common sense policy, but because our fellow crewmembers are now unshakably aware that this company will refuse to do what's right if we remain quiet. We are ending this campaign at 20,000 signatures to stand as a reminder for crewmembers that we are here and we will not back down. We are ending this campaign at 20,000 signatures to remind corporate that we have broad public support and worker solidarity on our side – and we're only just getting started. Solidarity forever.
