Labor

After being elected as a Co-chair for my local staff union, the NewsGuild-CWA, I have directly seen the importance of labor unions.

Labor unions are important to our City and District and I will work to support them in City Hall.

  • Work to advocate for the needs of workers to make sure that working conditions improve and workers needs are met.
  • Make sure that workers who don’t have the protection of a labor union to know their rights and navigate the City’s resources when they are taken advantage of.
  • Because I believe that democracy should be extended to the work place, I will work with advocates and other leaders towards a future where we see increased worker ownership, or part ownership, of businesses.
  • I stand behind the effort to organize the City Council staff, a group I used to be a part of, as well as the larger effort to improve toxic work environments in government.
