Council 57 and a number of our locals gave the gift of solidarity this holiday season by supporting the successful two-month strike organized by machinists at Henkels Bay Point.

Nearly 600 medical workers in Truckee opted to join AFSCME Council 57, a victory that will strengthen their efforts to improve the services they provide to their communities.

The goal of the C.L. Dellums African American Leadership School, sponsored by the Contra Costa Labor Council and United Steelworkers Local 5, is to train union and community members active in the Black community so they can strengthen relationships between the Black community and the labor movement.

This year’s program will focus on Black workers and the Black community in Contra Costa County. Classes will take place on five Saturdays and will include both classroom and field work. Participants will be selected after an application and interview process.

The deadline to apply is Feb. 2, and classes start on Feb. 24.
