Labor Is Fighting Back Empty No honeymoon for Macron as thousands protest at May Day rallies in France

Post by Admin Sun May 01, 2022 2:50 pm

Thousands of people protested across France on May Day to urge the government to act on purchasing power and pensions, putting pressure on newly reelected President Emmanuel Macron.

While most of the protesters demonstrated peacefully, dozens of businesses were damaged in Paris, including a McDonald’s branch, banks, insurance companies and real estate agencies. According to media reports, police intervened after black-clad members of the radical Black Bloc group tried to erect a barricade and stop the progress of the march.

Amazon to Get Hearing That Could Overturn NY Union Vote, Labor Board Official Says
Amazon.com Inc's objections to a landmark union election at a company warehouse in New York City justify a hearing that could overturn the result, a U.S. National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) official said.

The online retailer has accused the NLRB's Brooklyn office of appearing to support the union drive and alleged that labor organizers intimidated workers to vote in their favor.

Citing the Brooklyn office's conduct, Amazon last month secured the case's transfer to the NLRB's Phoenix-based region. That office's director, Cornele Overstreet, said the evidence behind Amazon's claims "could be grounds for overturning the election," according to a filing on Friday.

Some 55% of employees who voted from Amazon's JFK8 warehouse in the borough of Staten Island opted to join the Amazon Labor Union (ALU), which has argued for higher pay and job security. Turnout was about 58%.

Labor Is Fighting Back Empty Worker Hailed As 'Entire Department' Quits Multi-Million Firm Over Pay Rise

Post by Admin Mon Jul 18, 2022 2:05 pm

We need to follow their example. Nothing gets done without activism. Especially by labor:
An employee has been praised by the internet for leaving his job after his boss refused him a pay rise, quoting it would be unfair to his coworkers.

In a post shared on Reddit on Sunday, the worker, who goes by the username u/NonVeganMillennial, explained that a year ago he asked his boss for a 15 percent raise, to get on an even level with the wider industry average, providing industry statistics to back up his claims.

...The worker told his colleague about what was happening, and many of them followed in his steps. "I told my colleagues about the situation, and all four of them asked for my friend's number, and three months later they had all found a higher paid position."
