Boycott Shipt and Protest Shipt's Essential Worker Pay Cut!
Happening at Shipt's HQ in Birmingham and Target's HQ in Minneapolis
Shipt is cutting the pay of its essential workers nationwide, right in the middle of this COVID-19 pandemic, by forcing its workers to transition to a nontransparent black box pay scale that they did not want. The Shipt List will be protesting and fighting for the rights of all Shipt workers to receive fair and equitable pay. Read more about why we protest and how you can participate, even if you cannot join us!

Sign the Change.org Petition to end V2/V3 Pay Cuts
A shopper-initiated petition is circulating on Change.org to end the new V2/V3 pay scale and to not cut shopper pay during this COVID-19 pandemic. Please sign the petition and share it with your friends and fellow shoppers. With every signature, our collective voice gets even louder!
Contact Your Government Officials
Nobody would accept a 9-5 job, do the work, and then wait to find out what their pay will be. But yet, Shipt is trying to devalue you by forcing you to do just that. Advocate for pay transparency from Shipt and all gig-based companies. During this pandemic, Target and other retailers have given their essential employees hazard pay and PPE. Shipt is a subsidiary of Target, but has not been providing us with the hazard pay and PPE that we deserve.
Advocate that your city, county, and state mandate that hazard pay and PPE be provided by gig work providers at no cost for all gig workers across all industries. City councilmembers, mayors, county commissioners, and state legislators are always looking out for ways to support their constituents, especially during this COVID-19 pandemic. Reach out to them and utilize your power as a citizen and voter. Fight for your rights as a gig worker!
Then, contact your US senators and representatives to request an introduction of federal legislation to protect gig workers and a congressional inquiry into Shipt, their nontransparent blackbox pay scale, and their unethical labor practices.
