Avaya Inc is outsourcing Colorado Jobs. Outsourcing hurts families, students, homemakers, taxpayers, local business and our economy. Colorado taxpayers should not subsidize Avaya's profit margin, nor should they bear the burden of business failures, foreclosures, unemployment and higher taxes caused by outsourcing.
Avaya is owned by TPG and SilverLake. Both of these companies are private equity firms with $Billions in assets.
Contact TPG and SilverLake and tell them to keep our jobs in Colorado!
Sign this petition to The Colorado State House, The Colorado State Senate, Governor John Hickenlooper, The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama, which says:
An Obama administration rule that speeds up the process by which employees can unionize will take effect Tuesday after Republicans last month failed to block the measure.
Under the new National Labor Relations Board rules, employees could potentially organize a union in less than two weeks, compared to the previous average of 38 days between the time a petition is filed and the election is held.
Labor groups say this will prevent management from needlessly delaying union elections. But Republicans and business groups contend it will not give companies enough time to prepare for union elections.
According to Bureau of Labor Statistics, unionized workers earn $200 a week more than non-union workers. When benefits are included unionized employees earn $425 a week more than non-union employees. Increasing private sector unionization rates is an essential component to any plan to grow the middle-class. Any change that makes it easier for workers to unionize is a positive development.
Over the last three decades, the deck has been stacked by Republicans against unions. President Obama’s new rule is an important step towards unions finally being able to fight back.
