  • Coffee Tree: Stop Violating Basic Workers' Rights
    In September 2017, the Seattle Office of Labor Standards (OLS) found that Ryan Lee is guilty of first degree violation of wage theft and retaliation. For two years, Ryan Lee will be required to collaborate with OLS to check for lawful employee treatment; review documentation; submit financial statements twice/year. Within six months, the owner is required to attend Management Training with the Business Liaison at OLS. Future employees will be notified of their rights through mandated labor standards posters. This agreement is approved for public disclosure.

  • 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!

  • Pay support staff what they deserve!
    As of today, Tupelo Honey Cafe has raised the wages of support staff in their downtown Asheville, Raleigh and Virginia Beach locations back to $5.15 per hour. I’m incredibly proud of the success of this campaign and more than ever, I am convinced of the power working people have when they stand up and work together to demand more. When it comes to workers’ rights, I believe we have to take power and create voice – those things are not handed to us. Food service activism is on the rise, though addressing workplace conditions within the restaurant industry is a fairly new phenomenon. My hope is that our small victory is one of thousands of small victories that ultimately will change the way workers view their ability to speak up and shape their working conditions. -- Alia Todd
