    The union representing thousands of Starbucks workers in the US is staging a walkout on one of the coffee chain's busiest days of the year. The action comes amid a bitter fight between Starbucks and Starbucks Workers United, which started organising workers at the company in 2021. The two sides are fighting over pay, scheduling and other issues. Roughly 200 stores are expected to be affected by the 16 November work stoppage. Barista Michelle Eisen, one of the union's leaders, said the company could afford to "do better by its workers". The protest is the second to coincide with Starbucks'...

    The union representing thousands of Starbucks workers has said it will launch its “largest strike ever” on Thursday amid the coffee chain’s annual Red Cup Day. Starbucks Workers United said in a press release on Monday that it is demanding the company bargain over staffing and scheduling issues and turn off mobile ordering on promotion days like Red Cup Day. The yearly event, during which Starbucks gives away free reusable holiday cups, is the company’s “biggest sales event of the season” and “one of the most infamously hard, understaffed days for the baristas that work them,” according to the union....

    The United Auto Workers (UAW) will end its strike against the Big Three as the labor union has reportedly reached a tentative agreement with General Motors (GM). The UAW had, in the last few days, reached similar deals with Ford and Stellantis. On Monday morning, reports circulated that the UAW had reached a deal with GM. According to details available, the deal mimics many components of the union’s deal with Ford, where base wages will increase 25 percent through April 2028. Likewise, the deal reinstates benefits that GM’s auto workers have not enjoyed since the Great Recession, such as cost-of-living...

    When Norelis Vargas heard about housekeeping work at a hotel near Los Angeles International Airport, she did not hesitate to sign up. Vargas, 39, who migrated from Venezuela and entered the U.S. about three months ago seeking asylum, had been living with her husband and three children for months at Union Rescue Mission, a homeless shelter on Skid Row, and needed the income. But when she arrived at Four Points by Sheraton on Oct. 6, Vargas said she was surprised to find a group of hotel employees picketing. “I thought, it’s good they are fighting for their rights,” Vargas said....

    The United Auto Workers union sent 6,800 Stellantis employees to the picket line Monday morning in a surprise, targeted strike at the company’s Ram truck facility. The Sterling Heights Assembly Plant is Stellantis’ “largest plant and biggest moneymaker,” UAW said in a statement Monday. The plant, about a half-hour north of Detroit, in Sterling Heights, Michigan, produces the Ram 1500 pickup. The union said the company, which makes vehicles under the Dodge, Ram, Jeep and Chrysler brands, has “the worst proposal on the table” in its negotiations on pay, converting temporary workers to full time and cost-of-living adjustments. “Despite having...

    Detroit's casino workers are currently on strike after union contracts expired at all three of the city’s gambling facilities. Walkouts in Motor City began Tuesday at noon, carried out by some 3,700 casino workers across five unions. The Detroit Casino Council, the body that represents the procession, has been seeking better wages and benefits - a common theme in the US as of late as the cost of living continues to sky-rocket. Strikes, as a result, have been widespread - with nearly 34,000 autoworkers also striking in the city, and more than 160,000 Hollywood actors still seeking higher wages and...

    The United Auto Workers (UAW) strike has expanded again with roughly 34,000 American auto workers now striking across the United States while few Americans, a poll finds, back General Motors (GM), Ford, and Stellantis in the conflict. Late Wednesday evening, 8,700 UAW members at Ford’s Kentucky truck plant in Louisville walked off the job and joined 25,300 other UAW members who have been on strike for nearly a month now. “We have been crystal clear, and we have waited long enough, but Ford has not gotten the message,” UAW President Shawn Fain said in a statement. “It’s time for a...

    The United Auto Workers union launched an unexpected strike against Ford Motor at the automaker’s highly profitable SUV and pickup truck plant in Kentucky. The strike was effective at 6:30 p.m. ET Wednesday at Ford’s Kentucky Truck Plant, where the automaker produces Ford Super Duty pickups as well as the Ford Expedition and the Lincoln Navigator SUVs. The facility employs 8,700 UAW members. The strike at the plant — Ford’s largest in terms of employment and revenue — marks a major escalation in the UAW’s targeted, or “stand-up,” strikes. It also represents a shift in strategy now in the fourth...

    Thousands of Canadian auto workers are joining the United Auto Workers (UAW) strike across the United States as American auto workers warn that they face “poverty wages” as a result of President Joe Biden’s rules to mandate electric vehicles (EVs). On Tuesday, about 4,300 Canadians at three Ontario-based General Motors (GM) plants joined the UAW strike, which is also against Ford and Stellantis. GM now faces a production issue, as the plants produce a number of vehicles, including Chevrolet Silverado trucks, one of the automaker’s most profitable. Officials with Unifor, the Canadian labor union equivalent to the UAW, accused GM...

    While the teachers flaunt their “righteousness” and fancy themselves activists, the more apropos term is “useful idiots” — they are unwitting accessories to an agenda that is antithetical to everyone’s best interest, including their own. The Fresno Teachers Association, a union with around 4,000 members, is headed towards a strike, largely because the superintendent of the Fresno Unified School District, Robert Nelson, hasn’t budged on allowing school parking lots to become homeless camps; as Nelson says, the proposal isn’t within the district’s “area of expertise.” But according to the president of the union, Manuel Bonilla, it is; from a new...

    Kaiser Permanente employees launched a three-day strike Wednesday morning at facilities across the country. Roughly 75,000 employees were expected to hit the picket lines across the U.S. for the next three days. In Northern California, more than 37,000 workers were slated to walk off the job, upset over wages and a lack of staffing. The union claims its poll found two-thirds of workers have seen care delayed or denied due to short staffing. Kaiser has disputed those results. "We are overwhelmed," medical assistant Damaris Reyes said. "I don’t think that we can go any longer with what Kaiser is offering...

    Donald Trump slammed Joe Biden on Tuesday, saying that the UAW strike, which has seen workers halt production and parts distribution at dozens of factories across the midwest, is a result of his electric vehicle policies and requirements. Trump will be visiting workers on the picket line on Wednesday. "Joe Biden's draconian and indefensible Electric Vehicle mandate will annihilate the U.S. auto industry," Trump said, "and cost countless thousands of autoworkers their jobs. The only thing Biden could say today that would help the striking autoworkers is to announce the immediate termination of his ridiculous mandate." "Anything else is...
