Worker Protections

Jen Pack

With a hostile US Supreme Court and workers’ rights to organize facing attacks from all sides, it’s important to fight for worker protections and actively empower unions to organize. Unions are vital parts of our communities, and we must treat unions as partners and stakeholders rather than obstacles in the workplace. 


  • All city contracts and projects must be made with union workers or firms that use union labor.
  • Encourage and promote Community Workforce Agreements to encourage local hiring and competitive wages.
  • Work with unions to create strong apprenticeship programs and opportunities that are linked to community colleges and high schools, as well as to those looking to change careers.
  • Advocate for and defend workers right to organize and strike.
