We union Home Care Workers & supporters, led by mariachi band, march in Fresno streets to nudge county supervisors into negotiating with us for living wage & health benefits. We voted 90+% for the union but they will not talk. We have filed unfair labor practice charges & will keep demonstrating til they talk with us or are unelected. See us march in 1 minute video clip:
