Alameda County Democrats
Urge Mayor and Council
to Support City Workers
Our member leaders have been busy working to build political power for our contract campaign. 
At the Alameda County Democratic Party’s monthly meeting, a contingent of Local 21 and SEIU 1021 members spoke about our struggle to provide quality public services amidst the understaffing crisis. 
As a result, the Alameda County Democratic Party Central Committee unanimously passed a resolution in support of Oakland city workers and called on Mayor Schaaf and Oakland City Council to negotiate a fair wage proposal with city workers. 
You can read a portion of the resolution below.
