No on the anti-union recall

Millionaire Republicans who want to roll back the clock on California’s worker protections are funneling big money into a campaign to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom. Let me be clear: If they succeed, we’ll lose many of the big gains we made on higher wages, pensions, health and safety, and a lot more.

To protect our contract, wages, and health care, I’m writing to you today to ask that you join me in voting NO on the Recall.

Who is behind this Recall?  It is a national network of very rich anti-union funders who are taking aim at our pensions, wages, health care and voting rights. They have spent millions to put this special election Recall on the ballot.


Because they couldn’t win in the last election with a union-busting candidate, they put a “special election” on the ballot, which always has a much lower voter turn-out by union members. They want to control California by pulling a fast one on California’s working folks. It ticks me off. I hope it does the same to you, too.

Celebration of Juneteenth aka Jubilee Day

This June 19th 2021, the SERJ Committee of OPEIU Local 29 would like to recognize the celebration of Juneteenth (aka Jubilee Day). Juneteenth originated in Galveston, Texas in 1865 and celebrates the end of the enslavement of Africans and African- Americans. Although the Emancipation Proclamation had officially outlawed the enslavement of human beings in the country January 1, 1863, it would take almost another two and a half years, and an estimated 1,000,000 lives lost, before all states recognized the Proclamation.
