Before you fill out this form, please review these instructions carefully:

What is a victory?

  • Grievance wins
  • Shop floor campaigns (e.g. delegations, petitions, leafletting)
  • Contract enforcement

Best practices:

  • Plan in advance to report for your victory by:
    • Taking a photo as early as possible, e.g. when your grievant files their grievance, before or immediately after a delegation
    • Asking workers to sign media release form as soon as you take their photo
    • Writing the blurb to describe the grievance/campaign in the middle of the process. The worker(s) involved can even help you write the blurb
  • If a worker is scared to post their photo (e.g. fear of retaliation), agitate them on the importance of sharing our victories
  • You can share the victory in staff meeting and/or city-wide meetings before or after you submit this form. BUT if you do it before submitting this form, you have a ONE WEEK DEADLINE to submit your photo, media release, and the form below to Paola & Bryant

How to submit a victory:

  • (e.g. Minnie Mouse has worked as a Starbucks barista for HMSHost at Honolulu Airport for over 15 years.)
  • (e.g. The company disputed her seniority and recalled a less senior worker before her)
  • (e.g. The Union filed a grievance on her behalf and over a dozen of her coworkers attended multiple meetings in solidarity with her. Because of this, Minnie Mouse got her seniority corrected, has been called back to work, and won $1,151.20 in backpay.)
