San Francisco SEIU 1021 rank and file union leaders and other workers spoke out against the systemic racism by the City and County of San Francisco and demanded that SF Human Resources Director Micki Callahan be removed from her job by Mayor London Breed. Callahan at previous SF Board of Supervisor's meeting on September 19, 2018, had been charged by many African American city workers with being personally involved in racist discrimination and covering up massive workplace bullying and corruption in the city and county of San Francisco. They were joined by SF Labor Council Secretary Treasurer Rudy Gonzalez.

City workers also discussed the growing privatization and outsourcing of public jobs to non-union workers many making $14 or $15 an hour and working side by side with SF City workers doing the same work. They also said this threatens the public as well as threatening the health and safety of SF City workers.
