Trade Unionists, activists and community members in San Francisco protested at the San Francisco Labor Council Martin Luther King breakfast on January 20, 2020.

Trade unionists and community members talked about the systemic racism and gentrification in San Francisco and the failure to confront it by the leadership of the San Francisco labor movement.

Delegates also talked about SEIU 1021 and IFPTE Local 21 opposing a $2.7 million appropriation from the City and County of San Francisco for refunding of over 300 classes that have been canceled by SF City College Mark Rocha and the CCSF Board of Trustees who are in favor of "downsizing" the community college.

Also former IBT VP and Joint Council 7 President Rome Aloice denied that IBT 350 member Daryl Washington had contacted him to get support to oppose his termination for reporting a hanging noose at SF Recology.
