IWJ is active in multiple campaigns targeting well known corporations that have standardized poor working conditions, low pay and stifling collective bargaining rights. We're working with our allies on the following campaigns:
Call for Jubilee at Walmart
More than 1.4 million Walmart workers in the United States are earning poverty wages and work in dangerous environments with limited access to insurance and benefits at Walmart. IWJ is involved with the Making Change at Walmart Campaign and calling for Jubilee at Walmart.
The Hyatt Touch...hurts
Hyatt housekeepers are amongst the hardest working hotel workers in the industry— some housekeepers are required to clean as many as 30 rooms in an 8 hour shift, and their heavy work load often leads to injuries on the job. We're working with the Hyatt Hurts campaign calling for a global boycott of Hyatt hotels.
Tell Verizon to return to the bargaining table
Verizon is a profitable company with billions in revenues in recent years and rewarded its executive managers with millions, yet Verizon executives won't join workers at the bargaining table and negotiate a new contract.
Republic Airlines: Fairness in Flight
An IWJ-led monitoring committee of community and faith leaders recently issued a report outlining concerns about Republic Airways' anti-union campaign against mechanics wanting to organize.
There is a critical role for the religious community to stand alongside workers as they call for justice from their employers. —Ryan Wallace, IWJ Seminary Summer intern 2012
