These are the crucial races for working people across California
All 2018 Labor Endorsements for state, federal, and local races can be found here.
PROPOSITION 5 | Changes Requirements for Home Owners to Transfer Property Tax. Recommend: Vote NO.
“The Nov. 6 ballot measure would make property taxes in California even less fair while devastating the budgets of local schools and governments. Voters should reject it…Proposition 5 is a reminder that California’s property tax system does need to be made more equitable. But this measure would only make it worse. That is the wrong direction for California.”

PROPOSITION 6 | Eliminates Road Repair and Transportation Funding. Recommend: Vote NO.
“Prop 6 would eliminate funding for more than 6,500 bridge and road safety, transportation and public transit improvement projects currently underway throughout California. It would also set the terrible precedent of repealing much-needed revenue that protects our families and creates good-paying jobs.”

PROPOSITION 8 | Authorizes Regulation of Dialysis Clinics. Limits Charges. Recommend: Vote YES.
“Proposition 8 will push for-profit dialysis corporations to spend more money on direct patient care. Dialysis corporation revenues will be limited to no more than 15% above the amount they spend on patient care. By linking revenue to care, dialysis corporations will have a greater incentive to invest in patient care.”

PROPOSITION 11 | Requires Private Ambulance Workers to Remain On-Call During Breaks. Recommend: Vote NO
“[Proposition 11]strips first responders of their right to meal and rest breaks, which makes their jobs more grueling and makes us all less safe. Thousands of California’s first responders are in jeopardy of losing their right to meal and rest breaks, worsening already difficult working conditions and potentially risking public safety.”

Campaign 2018 Phone and Walk Schedule
This election year is critical and our chances of winning the House (and picking up a number of California seats) are great. BUT, we have a lot to do to get there. The California races are going to be TIGHT and as goes California, so may go the country. We’ve developed member flyers and pocket cards for some of our targeted congressional races in Orange County. You can contact the Orange County Labor Federation here for more information. We’ll have additional materials available for other areas very soon.
