LaborFest: Union Time! Why Workers Are Joining Unions and Their Fight for Worker Rights

More and more workers in San Francisco and throughout the country have had enough on the job and are joining unions to collectively stand up for their rights. In San Francisco, workers have joined ILWU Local 6 at Anchor Steam Brewery and VCA-San Francisco Veterinary Specialists (SFVS).

Both these groups of workers are the first in their industry to join unions and this is sign that working people see unions as the solution to their fight for justice and human rights on the job. Workers from Anchor Steam Brewery and VCA will talk about how and why they decided to join a union and what this means to all working people.
