Monday, June 22: Protest banning of formerly incarcerated workers from building...

Apple DESERVES the upcoming protest at Apple Headquarters in Cupertino this Monday, June 22, 11:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. Apple required that union workers undergo criminal background checks and then caused these union workers to be fired if they had any felonies within seven years. Keep in mind, these workers were working on a construction project, not in Apple’s plant.

SF School District blocks Blacks from rebuilding school

It has been five short months since dozens of unemployed Black workers and contractors protested exclusion of Blacks from demolition and demanded inclusion of Blacks in the rebuilding of Bayview’s Willie Brown Middle School. Now SFUSD plans to ask the School Board at their meeting Tuesday, Feb. 12, 6 p.m., at 555 Franklin, First Floor, to AWARD THE $44.6 MILLION CONTRACT FOR WILLIE BROWN SCHOOL TO A MAJOR WHITE CONTRACTOR without competitive bidding. Pack the meeting! Protest economic racism!

Let the community rebuild our schools!

In late August, Aboriginal Blackman United organized over 30 unemployed union members from Bayview Hunters Point to protest construction at Bayview’s Willie Brown Academy. We did not protest because we disagree that our public schools are much in need of repair or with the $531 million that the San Francisco School District will spend to upgrade our public schools. We protested because, despite this historic opportunity for the School District to work with local communities to rebuild our schools, there are no Black workers and no Black contractors at Willie Brown Academy. And at ABU we say that if we don’t work, nobody works.

SF Building Trades are election’s biggest loser
