In Support of Grocery Workers

Resolution Number 11-07.30L

WHEREAS, labor unions have historically been at the forefront of worker's rights, benefiting all workers with stronger health and safety requirements, wage and hour standards, and the protection of fair wages and benefits; and

WHEREAS, the efforts of the right wing politicians and billion dollar corporations to erode the wages and benefits of union workers must be stopped, or the wages and benefits of all workers and the middle class will suffer; and

WHEREAS, labor rights are civil rights; and our family, friends and neighbors in labor unions have stood by our side in the ongoing fights for civil rights, and equality for all;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the California Democratic Party extends our strongest support to the California grocery workers, the United Food and Commercial Workers, and the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor in their fight for fair wages and benefits for all California workers, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the California Democratic Party urges our elected officials, chartered Democratic organizations and all fellow Democrats to honor the picket lines, and to stand in solidarity with our brothers and sisters in labor by joining the workers side by side in the picket lines.
