Proposals Supporting Unions Filed by NY City and State 

New York State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli and New York City Comptroller Brad Lander have co-filed shareholder proposals on workers’ freedom of association and collective bargaining rights at Walmart, CVS, Netflix and food delivery platform DoorDash. At Walmart and CVS, the proposals urge their boards to commission and oversee an independent, third-party assessment of the their adherence to its stated commitment to workers’ freedom of association and collective bargaining rights. The proposal at DoorDash asks the board to adopt and publicly disclose a policy on their commitment to respect their employees’ rights to freedom of association and collective bargaining in their operations. The same proposal has also been filed individually at media firm Gannett by DiNapoli who noted each company targeted has faced numerous labour and workers’ rights controversies. “Freedom of association and collective bargaining are fundamental human rights,” DiNapoli said. “The right to join unions, without interference, and collectively bargain can help improve workers’ health and safety, as well as increase their training, skills and productivity. It’s in the companies’ own interests, and in the long-term interests of shareholders, to ensure workers are treated fairly.”
