SF City Hall Rally Before BOS Audit Hearing: If We Don't Get No Justice You Don't Get No Peace!
San Francisco city workers who are members of SEIU Local 1021 and IFPTE Local 1021 spoke out at a rally at SF City Hall against the systemic racism, workplace bullying and discriminatory terminations against African American workers and other groups in San Francisco. The rank and file members had forced the SF Board of Supervisors to have an audit of the Human Resources Department which is headed by Micki Callahan. Many workers talked about her role in illegal discriminatory actions and covering up managers and executives who have violated labor and human rights laws.

Top managers have been involved in financial mismanagement and fraud who have been promoted by Micki Callahan while whistleblowers have been retaliated against throughout city agencies. The San Francisco Labor Council has also supported the case of SEIU 1021 steward and Potrero Hill Health Center healthcare worker Cheryl Thornton who was improperly removed from her job for being a whistleblower. The Council also called on all Supervisors to oppose the systemic racism in the City and Country. There is also a drive for privatization and outsourcing of all city jobs which is attacking the community and all public services.
