  • We Support a Just & Healthy Workplace at WE ACT for Environmental Justice
    46 days after we took our campaign public, WE ACT for Environmental Justice has agreed to officially recognize our union! This is a huge victory for the program staff at WE ACT! We are deeply grateful for your support. Over 3,100 of you stood with us by signing our petition, and the public attention you helped bring to our campaign was, without a doubt, an important factor in this victory. We hope you'll celebrate your contribution today, and that you'll stay connected with us moving forward. Our next big step is to negotiate with management a fair and just contract that reflects and memorializes the key issues we've been fighting for all along: health, fairness, transparency, accountability, and a voice in the decisions that impact us day to day.

  • FIFA: The World Cup Should Be Played on Natural Grass
    While we were not able to convince FIFA to change the playing surface for the 2015 World Cup, we did succeed in getting FIFA to commit to natural grass for all future Women's World Cups, and we showed the world how professional athletes can ban together to demand that women have access to the same playing conditions as men. Thanks to this global effort, women in professional soccer around the world are demanding more -- and getting it. Let's keep fighting and winning!

  • Marriott: live up to your values, expand your paid family leave policy!
    This weekend I got the most exciting email in my inbox: a photo of a flyer explaining Marriott’s brand-new paid family leave policy! It says starting next year, many full-time Marriott employees will get eight weeks of fully paid parental leave for all parents. The new policy includes the same amount of leave for adoptive parents as well as increasing Marriott’s total reimbursement for adoption expenses to $12,000. It’s so important to celebrate every victory we achieve because of the real impact it will have on people’s lives. But we also want to acknowledge that right now, thousands of Marriott employees are on strike demanding better wages, job security, and improved workplace safety. Those employees are not included in this new policy.

  • 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.

  • Stop Tip Theft: Our Tips Belong To Us!
    The Congressional budget bill now includes a provision to protect tips as the property of workers! Following the momentum of 350,000 restaurant workers, their allies, and YOU coming together to push back on Trump’s proposed rule to make tips the property of workers—and Sec. of Labor Acosta admitting that tips should be the property of workers—restaurant workers and allies are now poised to celebrate. Today, Congress included in its omnibus budget bill a provision that will codify protections for tipped restaurant workers against employers, supervisors, and managers taking any portion of their tips. Let’s keep the momentum going!
