The world's biggest iPhone factory is reportedly offering $1,000 bonuses to entice workers after being shut down over coronavirus

  • The world's biggest iPhone maker is offering workers bonuses of more than twice their monthly salary to entice them to come work in the company's gradually re-opening factories.

Striking cooks to serve oil rig workers 'vegetarian only'

  • Cooks and caterers for the offshore oil and gas industry have been granted the right to ban serving workers meat dishes, birthday cakes and coffee as part of their industrial action.
  • The Fair Work Commission approved the novel work bans on Tuesday for a protected action ballot of union members at Sodexo, which services remote offshore platforms and is facing an alliance of the Australian Workers Union and the Maritime Union of Australia in negotiations for pay and conditions.
  • It claimed Sodexo wanted workers to "cop getting zero redundancy pay" and that was part of why cooks and caterers were going to take protected action if the company did not agree to a "union standard EBA".
  • Sodexo fought the protected action ballot on the basis that the unions had adopted a "radical and unexplained" new bargaining position in February after staff voted down the company's proposed agreement.

The state of #MeToo: Here's where the movement stands at the end of Harvey Weinstein's high-stakes trial

  • One in three US part- and full-time workers changed their behavior in the office in the wake of the #MeToo movement, according to a survey.
  • The #MeToo movement reached workers from industries all across America — including entertainment, retail, and finance — who called out sexual harassment.
  • About 4 in 10 workers think white and male employees have more advantages at their workplace compared to other groups.
  • Over half of black and Hispanic workers considered diversity and inclusion programs before accepting a job, compared to just 27% of white employees.
  • A separate new report from McKinsey and Lean In found that while white women saw some gains at work, women of color make up just 4% of corporate C-suite.
  • Women of color also face unique challenges at work, and face larger rates of workplace harassment than white women.

Amazon tells Sanders and Warren that warehouse workers are free to pee

  • In a response to 15 US senators, Amazon defended its warehouse working conditions.
  • Amazon stayed on the defensive in a response to United States senators about its warehouse working conditions on Friday, disputing claims that its workers can’t take bathroom breaks when they need to and calling on politicians who haven’t visited an Amazon fulfillment center to take the company up on its offer of a tour.
  • Two weeks earlier, the senators warned Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos in a letter to overhaul an alleged “profit-at-all-costs culture” that they say manifests itself in a punishing work environment for the hundreds of thousands of workers responsible for sorting, packing, and shipping customer orders.
  • But this response letter, signed by Amazon policy executive Brian Huseman, will likely do little to squelch protest from worker activists and some progressive politicians who say worker complaints and injury rates speak for themselves.

Go read this survey about tech workers and H-1B visas under the Trump administration

  • Today, the Medium technology publication OneZero published the results of a survey it conducted about America’s H-1B visa program — which, according to Pew, is “the primary way that companies in the United States hire high-skilled foreign workers.” That’s capped at 85,000 workers, which is less than 1 percent of the country’s workforce.
  • That means “for thousands of workers on H-1B visas, conditions are challenging, and can feel as if they’re designed to keep them silent,” Emerson says.
  • According to OneZero — which conducted the survey in partnership with the anonymous workplace feedback app Blind — many workers on H-1B visas feel like their place in this country is highly conditional.
  • OneZero and Blind ran another survey in early 2020 to see what tech workers who are not on H-1B visas feel about the program.
