One of the Monterey Bay area's largest labor organizations, Monterey Bay Central Labor Council AFL-CIO, has endorsed Sandy Brown, Kelsey Hill, and Kayla Kumar for Santa Cruz City Council in the November 2020 election. The Monterey Bay Central Labor Council (MBCLC) is the local body of the American Federation of Labor-Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO), representing more than 39,000 union members and their families from the Monterey Bay Area.

Additionally, the Monterey Bay Central Labor Council has endorsed John Leopold for Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors, District 1.

"Union members count on elected officials to be fully conscious of the human cost and benefit of every decision that comes before them," said Cesar Lara, Executive Director of MBCLC. "At their best, they carry forward the hopes and aspirations of working Americans; support for union concerns by candidates for public office is in the public interest."

"When a union supports campaigns advocating for public policy, it is based on the voices of union members who pull together across diverse backgrounds, viewpoints, and resources and democratically choose the candidates we believe we can endorse to carry our priorities forward," Lara said.
