Alameda County Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO, Resolution, May 7, 2018.

Resolution in Support of the California Poor People’s Campaign and the
Poor People’s Campaign Bay Area

Whereas, the Alameda Labor Council supports organizing people to advance
equity;

And Whereas, the California Poor People’s Campaign and Poor People’s
Campaign Bay Area are local affiliates of the Poor People’s Campaign: A
National Call for Moral Revival;

And Whereas, the demands of the Campaign, including “the right for all
workers to form and join unions”, “equal pay for equal work”, and
“public infrastructure projects”, support the efforts of the Labor
Council;

And Whereas, the UFCW, SEIU, AFSCME and United Steel Workers national
unions have endorsed the Poor People’s Campaign: A National Call for
Moral Revival, and UFCW has stated “The Poor People’s Campaign believes,
as our union family does, that our economy can and should work better
for everyone…. We’re proud to support The Poor People’s Campaign
because, if successful, it will bring hard-working families more power
to build better lives;”

And Whereas, the Campaign is the renewal of the work undertaken by the
Poor People’s Campaign in 1968 during which Martin Luther King Jr.
traveled to Memphis to support sanitation workers organizing AFSCME
Local 1733;

And Whereas, the Fundamental Principles of the Poor People’s Campaign,
which have been signed by all organizers, include, “The Campaign and all
its Participants and Endorsers embrace nonviolence. Violent tactics or
actions will not be tolerated;”

And Whereas, the California Poor People’s Campaign and Poor People’s
Campaign Bay Area are organizing a series of Nonviolent Moral Fusion
Direct Actions at the State Capitol each of the six Mondays beginning on
May 14;

Now, therefore be it resolved, that the Alameda Labor Council endorses
the California Poor People’s Campaign and Poor People’s Campaign Bay
Area and encourages its affiliates, union members and allies to support
and participate in actions when requested and the actions align with
union values.
