Next we discuss how hotels are using gig apps to hire scab labor and blacklist workers. Yellow Freight nearly caused a nationwide strike by failing to pay $50 million they owe the Teamsters’ pension fund. Several recreational cannabis companies in California have been caught signing labor peace agreements with a fake union. This week saw new union drives at Staples, Cartoon Network, and Grindr, along with the successful union election at a climbing gym in Brooklyn.
