Humane hours would be nice. Also some parameters for weekend work. It either doesn’t happen or we are paid handsomely for it?

In light of a post I put in the main feed, I believe an industry standard should be that employees get equity in their agencies. A union could win this. What other benefits wld you like to fight for

Rumors that an NYC-based PR company may be in the midst of organizing. They'd be the first in our industry, but still no advertising agencies yet!

Climate strike tomorrow to any who can join. It won't be as big as the one last week, but it's still an opportunity to push agenda items like a shortened workweek for productive degrowth.

What would be in our collective bargaining agreement? Sane working hours, for sure. Harder to lay off or better severance. What else?

One of the major challenges I've encountered in starting a union in my workplace is that people who are woke enough to know we need one are also the ones smart enough to jump ship.

The first things you need to organize your workplace are a full staff list and an org chart (title hierarchy). If those don't already exist, you can make them. Work on yours this week!
