This Labor Day, We Have New Reason to Celebrate – and to Keep Fighting

With Labor Day around the corner, working people have a lot to celebrate, past and present. That includes a new Gallup poll revealing public support for labor unions has reached 64%—a near 50-year high by some accounts. Compare that to the headlines just one year ago, in which public sector unions like ours were existentially threatened by an anti-labor crusade to weaken workers’ rights through the infamous Janus v. AFSCME decision.

Well it's almost that time again, yup re-election for one of the most important positions within Los Angeles County.  Ms Kathryn Barger is up for re-election in 2020 for the coveted post of Los Angeles County Board of Supervisor's fifth district seat.  For those of you that are not aware Ms Barger has been an outspoken advocate of Local 119 while she has been in the position as a Supervisor of LA County.  Supervisor Barger has thrown her support on many agendas' that our local has pushed such as insourcing of jobs back into the county. 

For those that are interested in touching on more knowledge regarding labor and workers' compensation law please look into this course offered at Los Angeles Trade Tech College.  This course will be instructed by Scott Ford and Cherly Wallach from the Law Firm of Ford & Wallach.  AFSCME Local 119 advocates for it's members to more proactive in their pursuit of knowledge especially when it comes to workplace issues so that your supposed superiors do not overstep and infringe upon your rights.

To those that were not present at tonight's meeting on 5-2-19, the latest and greatest news in regards to our "Fringe Benefit" package is the County Coalition of Unions (CCU) and the County have reached a final agreement.  AFSCME members at the benefits negotiation meetings fought long and hard for a fair deal that would be comparable to that given to SEIU members.  Big thanks to Robert Leonard and all those present at the benefits negotiations for pushing forward and not settling for the lowball and unfair offers made by the County for the past 6 months.  Our fringe package is as follows,

Injuries, workers compensation issues, work stress due to accomodations can be detrimental to your mental and physical health.  Sometimes it's just better when you can get the proper legal advice and representation of a lawyer.  For the most part employers and its management team are there to assist you in your time of need either due to injury or some other work related issues with accomodations, etc.  But there are times when you may have a bonehead of a supervisor that may over step the boundaries of what is legally allowed and infringe upon your legal rights.  Well thats when you need t
