Rideshare and delivery drivers with Mobile Workers Alliance, in partnership with driver groups from 15 countries, will participate in a Global Day of Action this Wednesday in direct response to the draft directive on gig worker rights by the European Commission.
TODAY, February 23, the children of health care and frontline essential workers and members of the Service Employees International Union, will come together to urge the Biden-Harris administration to reunite families and free the children and women who are currently in immigration detention. On the call, children and youth will share their stories and talk about why they believe that all families should be welcome, safe, and free in America.
Los Angeles rideshare and delivery drivers for companies like Uber, Lyft, and Postmates are rallying at the DTLA Lyft hub to protest the inadequate response from their employers to the COVID-19 pandemic and gig companies’ refusals to abide by local safety ordinances. The protest will include a socially-distanced mobile car wash and rally, where drivers will distribute masks and cleaning supplies and sanitize their vehicles with the help of union car wash workers.
Students, community members, clergy, and labor allies will lead a car caravan through South Los Angeles to the USC Department of Public Safety (USC-DPS) to hold a press conference demanding the university take immediate steps to abolish the USC police force and reinvest those funds in expanding scholarships for low-income students.
Statement by Bob Schoonover on Lack of Criminal Charges Against Officers Involved in Shooting of Jacob Blake
SEIU Local 721 is thrilled to have a respected national labor champion like Los Angeles County Supervisor Hilda Solis join us to defeat Proposition 22. Supervisor Solis understands that Prop 22 is bad policy because it would give a special pass to rideshare companies like Uber, Lyft and DoorDash and let them buy their way out of following California’s labor laws. Supervisor Solis realizes that Prop 22 would set a terrible precedent that other big companies no doubt would follow.

A bold new policy will be introduced at the upcoming LA County Board of Supervisors meeting to stop the spread of COVID-19 and mitigate any new outbreaks. The policy establishes worker-led public health councils in the workplace, serving as the eyes and ears of the day-to-day operations and expanding the capacity of the Public Health Department. It also allows the department to certify worker organizations, assisting public health councils with education, technical assistance, and tracking and reporting any instances of non-compliance.
