As a UFT member for more than 20 years, I know how crucial the role of organized labor is in securing workplace safety and fairness for regular folks. I fully support workers forming unions and seeking Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBAs).
Provide oversight and assistance for union formations and CBAs.
Organize press conferences in front of City Hall or job sites to highlight any unjust actions by employers.
Participate in non-violent direct action to support workers organizing or seeking a collective bargaining agreement. Advocating for workers is a perfect opportunity to get into what Rep. John Lewis called “good trouble”.
Support pro-worker legislation with my allies in labor.
