Black Workers Matter! Workers Unite!

  • The 69th annual Jefferson Bank Commemorative Protest highlighted the successful organizing efforts of workers at Amazon, Starbucks and fast-food restaurants.
  • The St. Louis Fight for $15 celebrated its 10th anniversary. The campaign to raise wages for low-paying workers and to unionize took off, forcing many employers to raise wages before the campaign came to their doors. We made a surprise visit to the Lindell Blvd. McDonald’s to remind them we’re still here—and demanding a union.
  • Amazon and Starbucks workers, tired of the repressive work conditions, were successful in unionizing. We saw the first union sites in 2022, with more to come. Starbucks has refused to recognize the over 260 locations which have vot-ed to unionize with Workers United.
  • For the past six years, OBS has participated in the National Black Worker Center’s Black Labor Day. This year’s theme was “Show Me the Money!” We also endorsed its Black Workers Bill of Rights because Black workers matter.
