Working Lunch: Unions call for Black Lives Matter strikes at restaurants

Also, a look at new health and safety strategies related to coronavirus

The Black Lives Matter coalition, along with labor unions and other advocacy organizations, is planning a day of action on July 20 focused on quick-service restaurant, gig economy and healthcare workers. In this week’s episode of Working Lunch, the team from Align Public Strategies talks about the Strike For Black Live’s potential for workplace interruptions, and how restaurant operators should prepare.

Meanwhile, the labor community has unveiled a new strategy on the health and safety front pressuring localities to mandate significant COVID-19 safety procedures that will protect workers and consumers, but also result in increased hours for workers – another labor priority.

Finally, the team takes a look at the détente reached this week by Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders as they came to agreement on policy and political priorities. Working Lunch wraps up with the weekly legislative scorecard.
