Over 150 people marched through SoHo in NYC today to demand that US retailers take responsibility for safety conditions in factories that manufacture their products. Companies like Gap (which owns Old Navy, Banana Republic and Piperlime), American Eagle, Walmart and Target have refused to sign the Bangladesh Fire and Safety Accord, which provides an important first step toward assuring all workers a safe workplace.

6/14/2013














25 activists affiliated with 99 Pickets and other local solidarity groups staged a demonstration inside the Target store at the Atlantic Center Mall in Brooklyn, NY, calling on the company to sign onto the recently negotiated Bangladesh Accord on Fire and Building Safety.

The action drew a heavy police and security guard presence that eventually forced the group from the store after about 15 minutes. As they reached the store exit, repeated attempts were made to deliver a letter to the store manager on this issue, but nobody on staff would receive the letter. The group continued the demonstration as they made their way to the mall exit, and along the way, a letter was successfully delivered to the Children’s Place, another company that sources apparel from Bangladesh and that has not signed the Accord.

At the mall exit, amidst some confusion, an incident occurred where one of the activists was arrested and taken to the nearby 78th police precinct. More news will be forthcoming as we get it.

March on Optimum/Cablevision: Reinstate the 23 Illegally-Fired Workers!

The scene on January 31 as NY labor and community allies demand that Cablevision/Optimum reinstate the 23 technicians they illegally fired.

You shouldn’t be fired for standing up for your rights! 

Sign the petition: http://bit.ly/WDiYLU

23 Brooklyn Cablevision/Optimum workers were illegally fired on January 30. Why? When they tried to speak with a Cablevision/Optimum vice president about the company’s lack of good faith bargaining, the vice president claimed they were striking — even though none of the workers had refused to work. In fact, some of the workers who had begun their routes were called back to the garage to be fired.

URGENT: 23 Cablevision Workers Fired After Union Action

Two Cablevision workers talk about getting illegally fired yesterday for DARING to speak to their boss.

This morning (Thursday 1/31), a coalition of labor supporters and other activists will accompany the workers BACK to work. Cablevision MUST reinstate these illegally fired workers! NY will NOT allow this attack on union workers. 

Join us! Meet at 7:30am at the Cablevision garage at 9502 Ave. D (at E. 96th St.) Near the Canarsie Stop on the L train, and the B17 & B60 buses stop close by.

1/18/2013


83% of New Yorkers support a Paid Sick Leave bill mandating that employers provide a small number of paid sick days to their workers. Though Mayor Michael Bloomberg would likely veto such a bill, support on the City Council is deep—there are enough votes to override his veto.

That’s great news for the workers of New York. Unfortunately, the Speaker of the City Council, Christine Quinn, doesn’t personally support the bill. And rather than simply voting against it, she’s using her power as speaker to stop the City Council from even VOTING on it.

Quinn is harming millions of workers, simply to please her allies in the 1%. It’s time to put a stop to this. It’s time to hold Christine Quinn accountable.

99 Pickets is planning a campaign of creative direct action, to highlight Quinn’s embrace of the 1% and rejection of the democratic process. If you’re interested in getting involved, please use the link below to sign up.

rebrandwalmart: The majority of Walmart warehouse workers are…  

1/07/2013


rebrandwalmart:

The majority of Walmart warehouse workers are hired through temp agencies, paid low wages, receive no benefits, and have no job security. They routinely lift heavy boxes – up to 200-pounds – from shipping containers on a piece rate system or for minimum wage for hours and days on end – in some cases 362 days a year. Workers encounter inhumane work speeds, moving  up to 450 boxes per hour by hand,  pollutants, high temperatures, little ventilation and intense retaliation if they complain about the conditions. Serious injuries on the job are common. For more info, check out Warehouse Workers United and Warehouse Workers for Justice.

From Bangladesh to the Jersey shore, (sing it!) Solidarity Forever!!  

They have taken untold millions that they never toiled to earn,
But without our brain and muscle not a single wheel can turn.
We can break their haughty power, gain our freedom when we learn
that the union makes us strong.

8am-8pm daily picket of Hot & Crusty, 63rd St. & 2nd Ave.!

Workers and members of the OWS community are picketing daily the 63rd Street location of the Hot and Crusty Bakery, following its recent closure, alleging that the company has deliberately withheld rent payments, after a hard-fought and successful unionization drive in May 2012. The company, owned by private equity partner Mark Samson, gave the Hot and Crusty Workers Association 11 days notice of eviction from the property, informing employees that August 31st would be their last day. The union, led by grassroots labor organization Laundry Workers Center and a contingent from Occupy Wall Street, students, faith and community members are holding a daily 8am-8pm picket demanding the company discontinue its union-busting tactics, pay its rent immediately, and continue to negotiate a fair contract with its workers. The company has used several bait-and-switch tactics during negotiations, threatening workers’ immigration status to deter their commitment to continuing the fight.

Members of the Kensington community and New York Communities for Change in a protest for fair wages and a union contract at the Golden Farm supermarket on July 24, 2012, as part of the National Day of Action for low-wage workers. Golden Farm owner Sonny Kim had for years paid his workers sub-minimum wages, and has been blocking the workers efforts to unionize and collect back wages that they have been owed. Members of the Kensington community, including the recently formed Occupy Kensington, have been supporting the workers.

#May2 #occupySOTHEBYS - Munch’s “Scream” on sale for 1%’ers while T814 Locked Out #OWS


On May 2 at an exclusive 7pm auction, Sotheby’s is expected to sell Edvard Munch’s iconic painting “The Scream” for $80 million dollars. Meanwhile, the Upper East Side art auction house has locked out 43 art handlers to replace them with low wage temporary workers with no benefits.

If you believe that a painting shouldn’t be able to sell for $80 million dollars, and that Sotheby’s should be shut down by everyone together on May 2nd, come shut down Sotheby’s on May 2nd.
