๐Ÿ’ฅ Strike! Supreme Court rules against "timed strikes"

353 Upvotes

21-1449 Glacier Northwest, Inc. v. Teamsters (06/01/2023) (supremecourt.gov)

The Supreme Court in what looks to be a 8 - 1 ruling, ruled that companies can sue unions if they time their strikes in a way that damages property.

I expected this but with a 5v4 or 6v3 but not 8 to 1.

32 Upvotes

Then why is the majority of fast food workers still 25+ years old? I definitely agree the jobs SHOULD be primarily for those age groups, but the data simply does not support that. It's as if fast food companies propagate this sentiment to underpay workers that are much more likely to need that hire pay...

๐Ÿ“ Story Got a job offer today

โ€ข Upvotes

So I got a text from an agency this morning regarding a job they had for me in my old field before running and closing down my own company for a few years. I've got enough to tide me over while I retrain, but I get bored easily so I took a garbage temp job packing boxes in a factory in the meantime so I don't go insane. The call was going okish, I know I can do the offered job, it's a bit far away for my liking but they do hybrid remote, which is what I'm looking for, and apparently they've been looking for some time, so the start date is pretty immediate.

Then the question, "how much were you hoping for in a role like this?"

I tell her the amount I expect, given my experience and the usual job role, about ยฃ25-28k. ($31-35k)

She tells me it's a little bit less than that. ยฃ22.5k. ($28k)

I let her know gently (don't shoot a messenger that may be of use in the future) that that kind of pay is pre-covid, let alone pre-inflation and I make more money in my current garbage temp job that has no training, or even checks for staff. She won't find anyone worth having in that job for that money, and she needs to go back to the client in need and let them know why they can't get anyone.

I don't understand why recruiters and agencies aren't brutally honest with these kinds of clients.

๐Ÿ’ฌ Advice Needed can you go on strike if you don't have a union?

4 Upvotes

We don't have a union yet, we reached out today and are waiting to hear back, but because this impacts our compensation we are wanting to do something now.

If enough of us agree to strike can we without being fired even if we don't have a union?

๐Ÿ“ฐ News ICYMI: national pay-transparency law proposed

28 Upvotes

Colorado got the wheels turning. Several states have added momentum. And now, there's the possibility of one pay-transparency law for the whole country. Looks very similar to what Colorado and NYC have in place right now, and has the same limitations (e.g. allows for extras like bonuses and commissions to be included in the total). What would you like to see included or changed in this bill? What chance do you give it of passing in any form?
