Today we took a field trip to Kaplan Intl and told them to sign a fair contract now w/their teachers! Huge thanks to Rude Mechanical Orchestra for “Which Side Are You On?” http://99pickets.org/kaplan
Getting ready… Kaplan Intl: sign a fair contract w/your teachers now! http://99pickets.org/kaplan
For over a year, Kaplan teachers have been fighting for decent pay and basic benefits. In this video, they explain the REAL “Kaplan Experience”.
Support them by signing their petition: http://bit.ly/19ZXr8u

We’re getting ready for May Day! New York: join the Immigrant Worker Justice throw-down on May 1, 12 noon at Bryant Park.
Would you eat at a restaurant that STEALS from their workers and FIRES them for standing up for their rights?
Write a review on Yelp! and let “Dishes” know that their illegal retaliation will not be tolerated. Workers have a right to collective action in the workplace.
Be sure to mention it if you’re a former “Dishes” customer.
#DirtyDishes: Retaliate? We escalate!
Austerity? HELL NO!! KIDS FIRST! Bloomberg spends millions of our money on education consultants, but claims experienced bus drivers — with an average salary of $35,000 — are too costly.
99 Pickets stands in solidarity with the striking bus drivers and matrons!
On Sunday, nearly 50 people rallied for Golden Farm workers. Keep it up! Come to the picket line. Regular hours are M-F 4-7pm and Sat/Sun 12-7pm at 329 Church Ave. Brooklyn. No contract, no peace!
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.
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.
You, too, can tell the truth about Walmart in their own stores! [Photo by Katie Moore.]
