Statement from President Yvonne R. Walker on Gavin Newsom Victory

We congratulate Gavin Newsom on his primary election victory this week. Local 1000 supports Newsom because he’s the best choice for working families.

He will be our ally as we fight for fair wages, good benefits and a secure retirement. Leading up to the November election, we will make calls and knock on doors to get out the vote.

Politics matter, and we’ll use our voice and our vote to give all Californians the opportunity for a good life and to enjoy the fruits of social, economic and environmental justice.
