Labor & Employment Committee Meeting

Our next L&EC meeting will be on Wednesday 29 July, 6:30pm, in Oakland, at the Oakland Law Collaborative, 1736 Franklin St Ste 400 Oakland CA 94612.

We will hear from Agustin Ramirez, the Northern Calif lead organizer for the International Longshoremen and Warehouse workers Union ("ILWU"). Mr. Ramirez will share information about ILWU organizing campaigns in Northern California, including recent victories for Local 6 Warehouse workers in the recycling industry. ILWU won a contract on 20 June for the ACI recycling center in San Leandro, which processes materials from 3 cities, Alameda, San Leandro, and Livermore. They had an Oakland victory in October 2014. Mr. Ramirez will also let NLG members know how we can support.
