We need your help!

Glaziers Local 1621,

Several weeks ago, in coordination with The South Bay Labor Council, the Wage Theft Coalition, and Working Partnerships USA, we pushed the Responsible Construction Ordinance past one of the final barriers. Now, it is time to give that final push for the City Council of San Jose to adopt the final draft of the RCO and put it into effect.

On June 18th at 11 am, after a five-year campaign, we are on the verge of a historic victory, finalizing this effort – and we need your voice, your presence, to make it happen! 

The Responsible Construction Ordinance will hold wage theft perpetrators accountable for unpaid wages where the State has already found them guilty and ordered them to repay what they stole. It gives workers a powerful tool to ensure they are paid for their work and promotes fairness and competition among responsible contractors.

We need your support to get this over the finish line. Can you attend and speak out at the City Council on Tuesday, June 18, at 11 a.m.?

In Solidarity,

Brett Davis
