Noose put up at Oakland SEIU 1021 workplace

December 10, 2015 will be the two year anniversary of the incident of the hanging noose incident at SF Recology where a worker put a hanging noose on the conveyor belt to intimidate and terrorize African American workers. When IBT 350 Teamster and SF Recology employee Daryle Washington protested this to managemeent he was retaliated against by the company and punished. This is not just about SF Recology but all racist workplace incidents throughout the country.

The company has refused to apologize and also has covered this incident up while harassing and retaliating against Washington. Additionally even though IBT International Vice President Rome
Aloise who is also the head of Teamster Joint Coun- cil 7 has been informed of this incident and asked for support for Daryle, he has been completely si- lent. Teamsters Local 350 officials, Teamster Joint Council 7 Political Director Dan Bloch and Antonio Christian who is the Director of IBT Human Rights Commission and also with the Teamster National Black Caucus TNBC executive director have all remained MIA about this racist attack on IBT members at this site in Northern California and continued retaliation. They need to stand up to these kinds of racist attacks and retaliation against IBT members who stand up for justice and human rights. The May Day action against police terrorism led by ILWU Local 10 is the kind of action the Teamsters need to do.
Additionally, San Francisco City offi- cials including the mayor and SF Board of Supervisors have refused to call hear- ings or even question SF Recology about the violation of the city contract that SF Recology has that excludes racist incidents of contractors with the City and County of San Francisco.

All labor, trade unions and working people need to stand up and demand an end to these racist attacks and attempted bullying of Darrell to remain silent.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

AN INJURY TO ONE IS AN INJURY TO ALL!
