The following statement was put forth following the announcement of LA Federation of Labor President’s resignation:
“It’s the OCLF’s mission to fight for a fair, equitable, and just society. The labor movement deserves better than what we heard. Anti-Black, Racist, homophobic, and anti-indigenous beliefs don’t belong in labor. This is a start, not an end. Our members deserve leadership that represents them, not demeans them. We stand in solidarity with Black, LGBTQIA, and Indigenous workers. Now it’s time for those elected officials to resign as well.”
Earlier today, both official statements from the National AFL-CIO and CA Labor Federation were shared on the OCLF’s social media as a show of solidarity with our Black, LGBTQIA and indigenous members.
