Divvy has been operating for over two years in Chicago. There are a good number of employees here have been here since the beginning. We need a living wage to continue in our quest to maintain this system. High demands are made on most employees. Yet, many workers are still near their original starting wages. WE ARE IN CONTRACT NEGOTIATION AT THIS TIME & NEED YOUR HELP!! Some have been made full time with a meager benefit package. We are asking for YOU, DIVVY RIDERSHIP to see our FACEBOOK website & our MOVEON.ORG petition & put management on notice that being told we are doing a great job is just not enough. We need a livable wage! WE ARE BIKERS, OUT & PROUD! Thanks everyone! Divvy Workers.
Divvy mechanics get paid better than most bike shop mechanics do. If you want more money, will you go on strike against the folks who rent your bikes?
Dupajas shows that it is all "it's all about me" mentality rather than looking at life from the other person's eyes.
If they go on strike, it a strike against Divvy, not against the people who ride Divvy bikes. If the customers of Divvy are impacted the complaints should be addressed to Divvy (who can end the strike) and not against the workers at Divvy.
Management can't end a strike, can it? No more than they can start a strike?
Management CAN end a strike simply by fair negotiations to meet the terms and conditions of employment (it's not just wages!).
Often company management don't want to be fair and try to blame it on their own employees.
The management equivalent of a strike is a lockout.
Thank you for the enlightening response. I support Divvy employees in their efforts to be paid a livable wage. Signed the petition.
Likewise. I signed.
Just curious but what sort of wages/benefits are workers getting now and what are you hoping to get from Divvy?
