Together, we are keeping city jobs safe.
Because of our efforts, the City Council decided not to rush forward with a plan to privatize the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Mayor Villaraigosa and CAO Miguel Santana have been
trying to privatize the Convention Center for months. The City Council
was going take up privatization proposals this week. But we took action
to stop it. Over the past few days, dozens of our union sisters and
brothers met with Council members to let them know we strongly oppose
any plan that takes middle-class jobs out of our city. We are protecting
the reputation and operations built by the center and our members.
mayor and CAO still would like to transfer the Convention Center into
private hands and do away with our jobs. This issue could come back to
the City Council as soon as Nov. 20. We need to stay engaged and alert
to keep our Convention Center public.
