We’re down to just 3 active campaigns, as XPO campaign closes

Global: We closed the XPO campaign which ran for 3 months; it had 7,522 supporters. We don’t know what effect, if any, our campaign had; we’ve asked the ITF for an update.

Somalia: We met with a Somali trade unionist returning to his country after many years of activism in the Canadian labour movement; he’s asked for our help and we’ve offered to put him in touch with people and organisations that can be helpful.

Turkey: We gave extensive publicity to the IUF’s Cargill campaign on social media. We also gave extensive publicity to the ITUC statement on recent anti-union activity in the country.

Campaigns: We reviewed which translations are missing and followed up with key translators. At least one of our campaigns will rise to more than 10,000 supporters if we can get a German translation done.

Finances: IndustriALL has generously offered to donate again.

Mailing lists: We imported another 36 new subscribers, supporters of our recent campaigns – most of them in English.

Major new campaign on Iran launched – and other news for the last 3 weeks …

Campaigns update:

Here is what’s happened to our existing campaigns this month — the number in brackets is the total from 23 days ago:

Russia: Union-busting at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology – 9,099 [9,050] +49
Iran: Free Mohammed Habibi 8,796 [0] +8,796 [new campaign]
XPO: Time to talk about your behaviour – 7,493 [7,406] +87
France: Rail unions fight against privatisation – 7,200 [7,188] +12

At the moment it looks like the Iran campaign will soon become our largest, and with boosts from some new translations and followups, it could exceed 10,000 supporters — the first time in a while that one of our campaigns has done that well.

In other developments in the last three weeks:

Australia: After 3 months, we closed the Exxon Mobil campaign – it had 6,434 supporters. We picked up ten new correspondents from Australia this month – a big welcome to all of you. Our Australian Twitter feed has run into some trouble; we are trying to fix this.

Canada: At the request of unions, we’ve publicised a few union jobs to our mailing list. We also did a dedicated Labour Day mailing.

France: We’re pressing the unions there through the ITF to find out if we can suspend our long-running campaign in support of railway workers.

Iran: We launched a major new campaign at the request of the Education International in support of a jailed teacher trade unionist, Mohammed Habibi. It already appears in 16 languages, but we’re hoping for more. If you can help with translations into any of these 10 languages — Arabic, Dutch, Farsi, Finnish, Georgian, German, Indonesian, Korean, Polish, or Swedish — please get in touch with me [ericlee@labourstart.org].

Korea: UNI gave us permission to close the three-month old campaign in support of Oracle workers.

Norway: At the request of the NNN union, we suspended our campaign.

Switzerland: Eric has been invited to attend a Global Labour Institute event taking place at the end of this month, at the IUF in Geneva.

UK: At the request of the TUC, we posted a job to our mailing list and social media.

USA: We closed the Wendt campaign after three months with the permission of BWI.

Mailing lists: We added 185 new addresses from campaign supporters.

New website design: We held another meeting with our London designers to discuss next steps for our website.

Nearly 800 more supporters for our latest campaign in the last two weeks, and two more campaigns in the pipelinee

August is generally a slow month for the international trade union movement, and this is reflected in the lack of new campaigns. Here is what’s happened to our existing campaigns this month — the number in brackets is the total from 17 days ago. Note very significant gains for the Russian and XPO campaigns.

Russia: Union-busting at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology – 9,050 [8,278] +772
Norway: Sekkingstad and Sund, stop union busting! – 7,449 [7,408] +41
XPO: Time to talk about your behaviour – 7,406 [7,155] +251
Korea: Oracle workers on strike – 7,272 [7,223] +49
France: Rail unions fight against privatisation – 7,188 [7,156] +32
USA: Time for Wendt to negotiate with the union – 6,755 [6,743] +12
Australia: Exxon Mobil – time for a fair deal for your workers – 6,412 [6,377] +35

In other news this month …

Brazil: It seems like we are about to launch a campaign here — stay tuned.

Europe: We boosted coverage of the Ryanair strike both on our news pages and on social media.

France: We asked the ITF for permission to close our French railway workers’ campaign, now running for more than three months. As you can see above, very few new supporters are signing up.

Germany: We promoted a story on social media about the youth section of the trade union federation DGB reiterating their opposition of boycotts of Israel.

Indonesia: We promoted the IUF’s Bali campaign in a mailing to LabourStart’s English list, and throughout social networks.

Iran: We publicised a new story about repression targetting teacher trade unionists.

Israel: We widely publicised a story about a big nurses strike across the country.

Kenya: We promoted a story about a tear gas attack on striking hospital workers on our news page and on social networks.

Romania: We gave extensive publicity to an IFJ story about attacks on journalists.

South Africa: We gave prominence to a story about the AMCU threatening to shut down the platinum mining business.

Sri Lanka: We’ve been approached by a global union federation and are about to launch a campaign targetting an employer in this country.

USA: We promoted widely a Boston Globe story about the increasing use of lockouts by employers. We also promoted the story about unions winning the referendum in Missouri, defeating a “right to work” (for less) law.

Campaigns: We discovered a problem with the code that made some of our pages appear to be security risks for users; now fixed.  It looks like we are about to launch two new campaigns — details above.

Donations: We received a generous donation from the steelworkers in Canada.

Mailing list: We promoted signups to our mailing list on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. We added 34 new subscribers to our lists. We also completed posting translations of texts so that when people support one of our campaigns in any language, but fail to check the box to sign up to our mailing list, they receive a reminder on the landing page.

Publicity: At the request of the International Centre for Trade Union Rights (ICTUR), we submitted an article on online campaigning for their quarterly journal International Union Rights.

Social networks: We did a mailing to our English list encouraging people to sign up to our pages on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. As a result, we picked up 181 new likes on Facebook and 141 new followers on Twitter. Our group on LinkedIn, oddly, seems have gotten smaller.

August not a slow season for us: Europe, Korea, Palestine, Philippines, Russia, Turkey, UK, Zimbabwe …

Here is the regular report on our active campaigns, with the totals from a week ago in brackets. The campaigns are listed in order of popularity, which is unchanged since last week. The most significant growth took place for the XPO campaign, due to the German translation — picking up nearly 400 new supporters in the last 24 hours. All of the other campaigns have stalled.

Russia: Union-busting at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology – 8,278 [8,219] +59
Norway: Sekkingstad and Sund, stop union busting! – 7,408 [7,361] +47
Korea: Oracle workers on strike – 7,223 [7,164] +59
France: Rail unions fight against privatisation – 7,156 [7,150] +6
XPO: Time to talk about your behaviour – 7,155 [6,758] +397
USA: Time for Wendt to negotiate with the union – 6,743 [6,735] +8
Australia: Exxon Mobil – time for a fair deal for your workers – 6,377 [6,333] +44
Canada: Solidarity With Women Striking for a Living Wage! – 2,038 [2,025] +13

Europe: We posted stories about the Amazon strikes to social networks.

Korea: We sent out the Chinese translation of the Oracle campaign to our list.

Palestine: We ran a top story on LabourStart which we promoted widely on social media about reports that a well-known New Zealand trade union leader was tasered and arrested by Israeli authorities while on a mission to Gaza.

Philippines: BWI’s story about an assassination attempt on a trade union leader was a top global news story on LabourStart and also shared widely by us on social media.

Russia: Our campaign in support of Professor Balashov is now live in German and the mailing is scheduled to go out on Monday morning. This is likely to bring this campaign to over 9,000 supporters (it’s now at 8,278 and is our largest current campaign).

Turkey: Following the victory by TUMTIS (recognition by DHL), we sent out a thank you message to our mailing lists which has gone out now in a dozen languages — Chinese, Czech, Dutch, English, Esperanto, German, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish, and Tagalog.  Other translations are on their way.

UK: USDAW’s campaign in support of workers at Marks & Spencer was promoted to our UK mailing list, Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook. When we began, their campaign had 6,108 supporters; today it has 6,763, so we have helped to grow it by 10%.

Zimbabwe: We widely shared the ITUC’s statement on social media and as a top story on LabourStart.

Mailing lists: Our special prompt on the campaign landing page encouraging people to sign up to the list (if they left that box unchecked) has this week been translated into Czech, Hungarian, Japanese, Korean, and Spanish. We have about six more languages in the pipeline which will be added in the next few days.  This should help us counter the effect of GDPR, which bans us from pre-checking the box to join our mailing list.  We added 47 new subscribers to our lists this week, most of them to the English list.

XPO Campaign: This is now live in German, and a mailing has gone out (see above for results).

LabourStart in Numbers: May – July 2018

Some highlights:

* Our mailing lists are shrinking in size, largely due to the effect of GDPR – which prevents us from automatically signing up new supporters for our campaigns. All of our top 10 lists have gotten smaller, and the only lists to grow were three of the small ones (Esperanto, Indonesian and Ukrainian).

* Growth on Facebook has also been tiny, with a number of our pages showing declines. This cannot be blamed on GDPR.

* Some good news: Our larger feeds on Twitter are growing well – 240 new followers for our main English global feed, 559 for our Canadian feed in English, and 258 for our US feed. But our smaller feeds remain neglected, we are not posting regularly to them, and they are not growing.

In the list below, the first number is the current total, the second one is our previous total.

Growing campaigns, German, Afrikaans, a victory in Turkey, site redesign and more …

Here is the regular report on our active campaigns, with the totals from 9 days ago in brackets. The campaigns are listed in order of popularity. The most significant growth took place for the Australia campaign (1,159 more supporters) and the Korea campaign (616 more supporters).

Russia: Union-busting at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology – 8,219 [8,006] +213
Norway: Sekkingstad and Sund, stop union busting! – 7,361 [7,276] +85
Korea: Oracle workers on strike – 7,164 [6,548] +616
France: Rail unions fight against privatisation – 7,156 [7,150] +6
XPO: Time to talk about your behaviour – 6,758 [6,488] +270
USA: Time for Wendt to negotiate with the union – 6,735 [6,727] +8
Australia: Exxon Mobil – time for a fair deal for your workers – 6,333 [5,174] +1,159
Canada: Solidarity With Women Striking for a Living Wage! – 2,025 [2,014] +11

Europe: We promoted an ETUC story on the rise of the far right as a top global story and across social networks.

Germany: Another volunteer has stepped forward and translated our two remaining campaigns that were not yet in German; the mailings for those campaigns still need to be translated. Our German list is our most successful of the larger lists, with a very high open rate and click-through rate, making it especially important that we do timely translations of all our campaigns and mailings.

North Korea: We promoted a story about the problem of slavery here to the top of our news page, and across social networks.

South Africa: One of our correspondents had raised the question of adding news in Afrikaans; we agreed and are continuing the conversation.

Spain: UNI’s coverage of police violence against striking Amazon workers got promoted on our news pages and on social networks.

Turkey: This campaign (DHL) was closed after the union won recognition – a big victory which are beginning to publicise. The total number of supporters in the end was 6,769.

UK: We discussed with USDAW promoting their current online campaign targetting Marks & Spencer to our UK audience and will do this today or tomorrow.

USA: A news story about angry teacher trade unionists was promoted on our news pages and on social networks.

Campaigns and mailing lists: We continued to add more language translations of the bit on the landing page that suggests you join the mailing list if you’d not yet checked the box on the campaign page itself. This now works in five languages with many more to come. We’re trying to add one language per day. Thanks to all the volunteer translators for doing this so quickly.

Shell campaign: We closed this English-only, time-limited campaign at the request of IndustriALL. The campaign had 3,575 supporters.

Site redesign: We have commissioned a workers’ coop in London to do preliminary work on a rebuild of our news site. This has been under discussion for a very long time, and is now finally moving forward. We should have something to see in August.

Russia campaign takes off

Our campaign in support of Professor Maxim Balashov and the trade union at MIPT in Moscow is growing very rapidly, thanks to a surge of support from teachers’ unions in many countries. It is our first campaign in some time to exceed 8,000 supporters, having picked up more than 2,000 new supporters in the last week.

We’ve also seen significant growth for our Norway, Korea, and XPO campaigns. (Growth for the last two is due to followup mailings sent out this week to our English list.) We’ve scheduled a similar mailing in support of the Australia campaign which will go out this evening and should jump-start that effort too, and probably bring it up to over 6,000 supporters.

Here’s a snapshot of how our campaigns are doing – the number in brackets is where stood a week ago:

Russia: Union-busting at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology – 8,006 [5,996]
Norway: Sekkingstad and Sund, stop union busting! – 7,276 [6,869]
France: Rail unions fight against privatisation – 7,150 [7,141]
Turkey: After nearly a year on the picket lines, it’s time for DPDHL to negotiate with the union – 6,733 [6,714]
USA: Time for Wendt to negotiate with the union – 6,727 [6,717]
Korea: Oracle workers on strike – 6,548 [5,878]
XPO: Time to talk about your behaviour – 6,488 [5,503]
Australia: Exxon Mobil – time for a fair deal for your workers – 5,174 [5,155]
Shell – Stop cheating contract workers! – 3,562 [3,515]
Canada: Solidarity With Women Striking for a Living Wage! – 2,014 [1,884]

In other news this week …

Europe: We had extensive coverage of the Amazon strike in Spain, Germany and Portugal, both on our news pages and in social media. The strikes were timed to coincide with Amazon’s Prime Day.

Georgia: We publicised the terrible mine disaster widely on social networks.

Germany: A belated fundraising mailing produced good results, with some 26 donors giving an average of €27 each.

India: We promoted both with a mailing and on social media Traidcraft’s campaign in support of tea workers — after getting the green light from the IUF, who have also promoted this campaign.

Turkey: We promoted the IUF’s new Cargill campaign on social media.

Campaigns: We had a problem that some of our campaigns included graphics (union logos) on insecure web pages; this broke our page and some people were seeing warnings in their browsers. There were 21 campaign pages in various languages that had this problem; all of them are now fixed.

Correspondents: We signed up four new correspondents from Australia, Ireland, Liberia and Ukraine. We wrote to 28 of our correspondents in Australia appealing to them to become more active.

Events calendar: The script to delete events had been broken; we have now fixed this.

Mailing lists: We asked our translators to translate 18 words of text to encourage people to join our mailing lists – in the next few days this will be added to our campaign software, and should boost the numbers joining our lists (we already do this in English). This is a followup to changes we had to make in accordance with GDPR which bans us from automatically adding people to our lists. This week we were able to add 55 people to our lists, 42 of them to the English list.

Big gains for new Norway and Russia campaigns

Here’s a snapshot of how our campaigns are doing – the number in brackets is where stood 8 days ago, when I last reported to you:

France: Rail unions fight against privatisation – 7,141 [7,124]
Norway: Sekkingstad and Sund, stop union busting! – 6,869 [3,966]
USA: Time for Wendt to negotiate with the union – 6,717 [6,698]
Turkey: After nearly a year on the picket lines, it’s time for DPDHL to negotiate with the union – 6,714 [6,680]
Russia: Union-busting at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology – 5,996 [-]
Korea: Oracle workers on strike – 5,878 [5,722]
XPO: Time to talk about your behaviour – 5,503 [5,452]
Australia: Exxon Mobil – time for a fair deal for your workers – 5,155 [5,063]
Shell – Stop cheating contract workers! – 3,515 [3,065]
Canada: Solidarity With Women Striking for a Living Wage! – 1,884 [1,740]

The Norway campaign seems poised to become our largest current campaign very soon. The Russia campaign picked up just under 6,000 supporters in one week, so it’s also doing quite well. The Shell campaign is continuing to run in English only, and for slightly longer than planned, and has picked up 450 new supporters in its “overtime” run.

In other news …

Brazil: UNI’s story demanding justice for Lula is shared widely on social networks.

Colombia: We shared the Education International’s story about repression of trade unionists widely on social networks.

New Zealand: We promote the strike by 30,000 widely on social networks.

Spain: We share the story of the Amazon workers strike widely on social networks.

Advertising: We haven’t paid for a Facebook ad for some time, so this week we did this to promote the new Russian campaign. So far we spent $70.51, our ad was shown to 11,389 people, and 113 seem to have clicked on it. Next time we’ll add our own code to see precisely how many people support a campaign due to advertising on Facebook.

Donations: Another Norwegian union makes a very generous donation to us. Another branch of Unite the Union in the UK also makes a donation. And we belatedly do the fundraising mailing to our German list — and get a substantial number of small donations as a result.

Events calendar: We fix the script to delete old events, which had not been working for some time.

Facebook group and page: We had quite a backlog of people asking to join the group; we’ve now mobilised more people to be admins so this should be resolved.  We add a couple more admins to the page as well, to ensure that we have fresh content all the time.

Mailing lists: We add 175 campaign supporters in 10 languages to the lists.

Tweeting our campaigns: We’ve had complaints that the Twitter link on our campaigns landing page wasn’t working; we did extensive testing on multiple browsers and operating systems and could not reproduce the problem.

Nine campaigns running at the same time – a new record?

It’s hard to believe that only a month ago, we were worried that soon we’d have no new campaigns on LabourStart, as we were down to just one. All that has now changed, and currently are running no fewer than nine (9) campaigns at once.

Here’s a snapshot of how our campaigns are doing – the number in brackets is where stood 16 days ago, when I last reported to you:

  1. France: Rail unions fight against privatisation – 7,124 [7,051]
  2. USA: Time for Wendt to negotiate with the union – 6,698 [6,563]
  3. Turkey: After nearly a year on the picket lines, it’s time for DPDHL to negotiate with the union – 6,680 [5,373]
  4. Korea: Oracle workers on strike – 5,722 [3,503]
  5. XPO: Time to talk about your behaviour – 5,452 [4,730]
  6. Australia: Exxon Mobil – time for a fair deal for your workers – 5,063 [134]
  7. Norway: Sekkingstad and Sund, stop union busting! – 3,966 [-]
  8. Shell – Stop cheating contract workers! – 3,065 [-]
  9. Canada: Solidarity With Women Striking for a Living Wage! – 1,740 [-]

Canada: At the request of Unifor, we launched a campaign in English and French, targetted only at Canadians.

Georgia: Eric spent a week in Tbilisi, speaking at a conference, and had a chance to meet with three local trade union leaders.

Global: At the request of IndustriALL we launched a time-limited global campaign on support of their campaign at Shell. The campaign will only run in English and only for a few days.

Norway: We launched a major new campaign, with the support of the IUF and the local union NNN.

USA: The terrible Supreme Court “Janus” decision – we have comprehensive coverage on the site, and give special publicity to statements from the ITUC and the GUFs.

Campaigns: We were alerted to a bug in how we had been displaying campaigns. It turns out that while the page is secure (with https), if we include photos without the https the lock icon disappears. This has now been fixed and noted for the future.

Donations: Three Norwegian unions make generous donations to LabourStart. A branch of a major British union also donates £100.

Events calendar: We continue adding events regularly to our calendar, from the USA, UK and elsewhere.

Mailing lists: We publicise our mailing list signup form, which is GDPR compliant (for the English list only at the moment) on social media. We add 203 new subscribers to our lists; 129 are English and 35 are Norwegian, due to the new campaign.

New campaigns, reviving our events calendar, donations, privacy and more

First of all, a snapshot of how our campaigns are doing:

1 XPO: Time to talk about your behaviour – 4,730
2 Korea: Oracle workers on strike – 3,503
3 Turkey: After nearly a year on the picket lines, it’s time for DPDHL to negotiate with the union – 5,373
4 Australia: Exxon Mobil – time for a fair deal for your workers – 134
5 USA: Time for Wendt to negotiate with the union – 6,563
6 France: Rail unions fight against privatisation – 7,051

Australia: With so many campaigns launching at the same time, we’ve held off on promoting the Esso campaign here, but will be doing so this week. It was very important in this case, as with all campaigns, to see evidence that our partners have been informing their own members and affiliates and not simply relying on LabourStart’s own base of supporters.

Caribbean: We offered our support for a campaign backing bank workers in their dispute with RBC, but have not yet heard back.

India: A massive strike by power workers which has been announced gets spread around a lot on our website and social media. We also add a new correspondent from India.

North Korea: We promote our North Korea news page on social media to coincide with the Trump-Kim summit, raising the question of workers’ rights.

Russia: We gave extensive publicity to the BWI article about deaths of construction workers who built the stadiums for the FIFA World Cup.

South Korea: We went live with the campaign in support of striking Oracle workers to coincide with the UNI Global Union congress in Liverpool.

Spain: We were asked to submit an article about LabourStart for the union magazine Noticias Obreras and have done so.

Turkey: We launched the campaign in support of DHL workers, and sent our a reminder message a week later (today). This morning there were 5,155 supporters and the campaign was already translated into 13 languages.

XPO campaign: We continue to launch in additional languages and send out mailings. We had problems with the campaign as two of the company targets attempted to block our messages. The campaign got a good, early push from the Teamsters union in the US before we even started our publicity, and this is exactly the kind of support from our partner which is so important for these campaigns.

USA: We had expressed some concern that the union whose workers are involved in the Wendt campaign had not informed its members as not a single member of that union had supported the campaign. Our repeated efforts and those of the global union federation involved resulted in 14 members of the union (which claims 120,000 members) eventually supporting the campaign. In other words, of the 6,563 trade unionists who have signed up to support the campaign, 99.8% came from other unions. This is a matter of some concern and we need to discuss among ourselves and with our union partners how to solve this persistent problem.

Events calendar: We wrote to all correspondents encouraging them to post items for our calendar, and slightly redesigned the login page to make this clearer. We continue to add events regularly from the UK and USA.

Finances: We received generous donations in the last week from BWI, UNI and several Canadian unions. We’re waiting on the translation into German of our annual fundraising appeal and hope to have this ready very soon.

Mailing lists: Despite new restrictions which we feared would drastically reduce the number of people joining our mailing lists after supporting our campaigns, those lists continue to grow well. We picked up 560 new subscribers on seven lists.

Privacy: Our privacy page in English now links to all 11 translations that have been done; we note the remaining key languages which have not yet been translated and will try to follow up with these in the next few days.
