5S WORKS TO ENSURE YOU WORK THE WAY YOUR MEMBERS EXPECT YOU TO WORK

OUR MISSION

We exist to help American workers earn and maintain a prominent role in labor markets by empowering them with data tools and services.

As capitalism evolves into the 21st century, disruption has become the norm. Strategic agility is a core competency for today’s multi-national corporations, and for them flexibility in labor pools is critical. In parallel the gig economy has provided a growing pool of free market actors. It is these forces that are upending long-held norms around the nature of employer and employee, and that create the conditions for exploitation, but also for opportunity.

We choose to stand on the side that sees this as an opportunity for the dislodged worker. We fundamentally believe in the value of work and in the dignity of each and every person. We celebrate the role workers have in the success of industry and our economy, and champion them as core constituents in our labor markets, and in the success America will achieve this evolving century.

We have started our mission in the airline industry, where the opportunity is clear and in hand. As we succeed we will expand into other organized labor missions to include railroads, trucking, logistics, manufacturing, and services. We will support our public sector workers. We will look for opportunities to expand beyond organized labor, with the goal of providing services to every one of the 150 million-plus American workers.

 

While we work for-profit in data services and delivery, we will push on law and policy by sponsoring research; writing public policy papers ourselves; and engaging thought leaders and politicians to move these issues forward.

 

Our name, 5S, reflects our mission. As David chose five smooth stones to slay Goliath, we choose empathy, data, communication, technology and reason as our tools to fight to strengthen and preserve the rights of workers against corporate overreach.
