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.

Well done Tom Woods & Teamsters Local 665

Today’s pandemic-related recession is the most severe since the Great Depression. President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion relief package is a significant step toward jump-starting the economy, but more is needed to address structural inequality and promote shared prosperity. Reforming labor law is essential to that effort; of critical importance is restoring workers' rights to organize a union.

Recently, the House approved the Protect the Right to Organize Act, which the Senate will soon consider. Biden has pledged to sign it.
