there is power in a union
@pizzacat oh God They're copying that Disney plus post too
@pizzacat company shitposts were a mistake
@anomaly hot take: companies were a mistake
@pizzacat I agree with the message but this seems like a bad example of its power; you can send tweets to @Target without a union
An individual tweeting that at their boss would be labeled as a troublemaker and get targeted for harassment and pushed to resign or risk being fired, a nonemployee tweeting that at a boss would be ignored. A union representing workers tweeting that at a boss is, for what it’s worth, protected activity and is the best way to speak to power.
@technomancy that said, here’s an idea for an escalation model, for job actions that can be taken to win workplace demands, after a worker has built a shopfloor committee with their coworkers.
this is just a generic model and would need to be modified for each specific workplace. For example, for some workplaces, a petition may be higher pressure than a march on the boss.
@pizzacat Oh my God I love your header
@k here’s the original, found it on the web
@pizzacat I _love_ this image (and I totally saved it)
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
