WHAT WE DO
Employees have taken action with the support of coworkers, consumers and community supporters to improve their workplaces using Coworker.org. Here are some of our favorite victories:
After tens of thousands of USPS employees sign a worker-led petition, multiple sitting US Senators write letters to the Postmaster General elevating worker demands for increased protections from COVID-19, leading to safety improvements.
Starbucks expands paid parental leave to barista dads and adoptive parents, updates its scheduling technology to prevent “clo-penings”, allows employees to have visible tattoos and dyed hair, and placed safe needle disposal receptacles in bathrooms after baristas spoke out.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, a worker-led campaign leads Starbucks to suspend business with pay at many locations. A subsequent victory leads the company to suspend its “happy hour” promotion, reducing the volume of customers in stores. Most recently, the company commits to a $15 starting wage for all employees after years of employee activism on wage-related issues.
