Rights of All Working Families

Union members are more than just workers. We have families, live in communities, buy consumer products and pay our bills. The Labor Movement defends the rights of working people in different areas of our lives, not just the workplace. The demand for racial justice cannot be divorced from the fight for economic justice. Civil rights are critical to a just society and to building a strong and active labor movement.

We support consumer rights to product safety, financial privacy, and regulation of public goods. We support policies that help workers balance work and family lives. We are unflinchingly devoted to the protection of civil rights and liberties, and abhor discrimination in all its forms. We are committed to ensuring that all Californians live healthy and safe lives that allow them to spend time with their families and friends and be an active part of their communities.
