  • Announcing the Little Big Union!

    Originally Published Here.

    Workers at Little Big Burger know that our safety, well-being, and voices are important. Every single day we serve customers, cook food, bus tables, and wash dishes. We have formed the Little Big Union to ensure Little Big Burger is truly inclusive of our collective voice as workers.

    Portland, Oregon is ground zero for fast food organizing. We love this city and call the Pacific Northwest our home. However, rent and the cost of living have continued to increase while our wages have not. Now, it is increasingly difficult to live in the neighborhoods we serve. This is why we are proud to stand in solidarity with the Burgerville Workers Union, as members of the Industrial Workers of the World, in the fight to make food service an honest, dignified, and dependable job.

    Little Big Burger is no longer a small business, they were acquired by North Carolina-based multinational corporation Chanticleer Holdings in 2015. Us workers and our families depend on this job for our livelihood, and we hope those who prepare the food, serve the guests, and create the environment that has built Little Big Burger stand to grow with our company. Workers continue to struggle by stretching our paychecks month to month, surviving off minimum wage, unreliable tips, and inconsistent schedules released often a day or two before we work. We are proud of the hard work we provide Little Big Burger, which is why we demand:

    • $5 raises
    • Fair and consistent scheduling
    • Safe and Healthy workplaces
    • Respectful and professional conduct from management
    • Benefits like child care, paid parental leave, quality healthcare, food boxes, bus passes, parking passes, and shift beers
    • Paid sick leave and vacation time
    • Worker autonomy to refuse service to abusive/dangerous customers
    • Holiday pay
    • Transparent hiring and firing policies
    • Sanctuary workplaces

  • Educators Stage United Statewide Walkout

    Teachers Rally in Richmond Virginia, including IWW members

    “Why did they march?” A mini-documentary from the Richmond IWW

    Thousands of education workers from all around the commonwealth of Virginia descended on the capitol city of Richmond in what was the largest single demonstration on the Capitol since 1916. The Richmond IWW was contacted by the lead organizers of this mass action for advice, assistance, and solidarity.

    The IWW’s involvement in the action itself, while not irrelevant, was also small in comparison to the efforts put forward by the rank-and-file teachers that built the RedForEd movement in Virginia from the ground up. We are proud to know and have marched beside these brave educators, some of whom are now also wobblies!

    Members of the branch were able to interview some of the folks that made this amazing day happen. These educators give their own personal details as to why they got involved, why they marched, and why they need more than VA is willing to give. Please watch this video with a full heart and pass it along to your friends…then take action!
