Ep 180 – Record Profits Mean Record Contracts

Support Starbucks Workers: https://starbucksworkersunited.controlshift.app/calendars/red-cup-rebellion

We’re back with another week of labor struggle. We start with a brief discussion of the incredibly racist labor policies of the British Navy. Next we discuss the supposedly amazing work conditions at Nintendo of America which CEO Doug Bowser claims are so good employees don’t want a union. Two more major healthcare walkouts were launched this week on the West Coast, in Washington and Oregon at PeaceHealth and California at Providence. Starbucks Workers United announced their biggest day of action yet, Red Cup Rebellion 2, on November 16. The NLRB announced a new rule defining joint employers, we break down the potential impacts. Two groups of undergrad workers won their unions this week at Harvard and the University of Oregon. Finally, we close with our discussion of the UAW’s Stand Up strike, which saw major escalations at GM and Stellantis this week and a tentative agreement at Ford.
