SF Protest Against Anti-Public Worker Prop C And Union Busters-SFLC Latch-up
Date Saturday September 24

Location Details
Saturday September 24, 2011 10:00 AM

Event Type Protest
Organizer/AuthorUnited Public Workers For Action
On September 24, 2011 a labor protest will be held against a "kick-off" rally of the San Francisco Labor Council and the union buster Sean Elsbernd, billionaire Warren Hellman and the San Francisco Chamber Of Commerce for Proposition C. This anti-labor measure will increase retirement age for city workers, eliminated their COLA funding out of the pension fund and allow SF City bosses to make large increases in the retirement health system plan by packing the Health System Board with top city cronies. It will mean a 12 to 14% cut in real wages for low paid city workers while giving a break to those making over $100,000 a year.



9/24 SF Protest Against Anti-Public Worker Prop C And Union Busters-SFLC Latch-up

Saturday September 24, 2011 10:00 AM
762 Fulton St. San Francisco

SF City Retirees and employees plan a protest action against Proposition C - the
alleged "consensus" amendment put on the ballot by billionaire Warren Hellman,
the Mayor and the Labor bureaucrats. The event is happening at the
Labor/Mayor's campaign kick off for Prop C and against D on Sept 24th at
762 Fulton St - 10:30 AM. Retirees groups were not included in talks with
labor where their benefits were reduced. Employee members are saying
that they had little say in the process. Newsom supporter SF Supervisor
Sean Elsbernd has pushed attacks on SF TWU 250 A Muni drivers and
has written this anti-public worker public worker retiree prop C initiative.
Public employees are being made scapegoats and blamed for the City's
fiscal deficits. Both Prop C and D protect the San Francisco wealthy at the
worker's expense.
Retiree groups against Prop C and D are growing in number. No on C and D groups include:
SEIU 1021 West Bay Chapter, Protect Our Benefits, RECCSF, SF Gray Panthers
and others. Also against C and D are opposed by the United Public Employees
for Action UPWA and the Peace and Freedom Party.

San Francisco is all about working together to find innovative solutions that improve our city and the world. From developing a universal health care program for all our residents to environmental initiatives that make us the greenest city in the nation, this is a city of firsts.

Once again, San Francisco is leading the way by developing pension reform by consensus, rather than by decree. Prop C is a solution that brings us together rather than pulling us apart.
