North Bay Labor Council, AFL-CIO

 

The North Bay Labor Council joins the strong and steady chorus of organizations and individuals calling for the resignation of Dominic Foppoli and standing with the brave women who have come forwar

Our labor council family is deeply saddened tonight with the news of the passing of our brother Joe Louis Wildmen.

Take Action

These are without a doubt some very strange times. I'm pretty sure none of us have lived through a pandemic like this before and yet...here we are.  

We've made it through fires, floods and now Covid-19.

We've gone ahead and reactivated the GoFundMe page we had during the fires. However, unlike the fires, when we could appeal to our brothers & sisters in other parts of the country, everyone is going through the same pains so we're just putting this out to folks to see if we can raise some more money. Hope you'll consider making a generous donation to help out our brothers and sisters who are struggling at this time. 

Thanks everyone. Here's hoping you and yours are safe and healthy and that we find our way out of this as soon as possible.

Domestic Workers are not protected by CAL-OSHA. SB 1257 will right that wrong. Please click "Take Action" and tell Senators on the Senate Labor Committee - where SB 1257 will be heard in a few days - to vote YES on this important Legislation.

The North Bay Labor Council stands strongly against racism, hate and violence of any kind

If you haven't watched this yet, please do. It's a reminder that we're coming out of a very dark time when we had an anti-union president and administration. What a beautiful relief it is to have a new President who supports Unions and working people. 

Watch it here. And enjoy!!

Last week, President Joe Biden had a message for Amazon: I’m watching.

“Workers in Alabama — and all across America — are voting on whether to organize a union in their workplace,” he tweeted, along with an accompanying video. “It’s a vitally important choice — one that should be made without intimidation or threats by employers.”

Biden didn’t name the employer involved, but it was clear to anyone paying attention to one of the biggest union battles in recent US history that he was talking about the e-commerce giant Amazon.

Every two years, the State Democratic Party holds ADEM (Assembly District Election Meetings) where candidates file and run for these seats. 14 candidates are elected in each Assembly District to represent that district at the state level. There is an attempt to achieve gender balance (7 women and 7 men).

 The deadline to file as a candidate has passed as well as to register to vote in this election. In the past, these were in person elections but due to the pandemic, this election is being held by mail. Ballots are due February 3rd.
