Defend & Speak Out for New Orleans Striking Sanitation Workers
New Orleans sanitation workers at the City subcontractor Metro Service Group went on strike in May to protect their health and safety and to win living wages, and they are still fighting.

Their wages are $10.25 an hour and were fighting for a $15 an hour wage. These workers who have organized the City Waste Union are fighting for health and safety conditions to protect themselves from over contracting Covid-19.

When the workers went on strike, the company had the police, and city replace them with prison labor and parolees.

Metro Service Group is owned by True Blue based in Tacoma, Washington, and they also own People Ready/Labor Ready. This is a labor broker that sells non-union labor to companies and they have offices in Oakland and over 600 cities.

In Tacoma, the ILWU and other labor and community supporters are taking weekly action, and we are joining in solidarity here in Oakland. They need your support. Please join us.
