This summer - workers across Alameda County - are unifying their struggles
to fight for new contracts and a Voice@Work - against employers attempting
to eliminate good jobs that we need in our communities, take away
healthcare & benefits from our families, attack workers' rights, and
threaten public services & the health of our neighborhoods.
