On Wednesday, March 17th (Happy St. Patrick’s Day!), Local 2 will conduct an All-Day, secret-ballot vote regarding a proposed change to the Local 2 By-Laws.

The vote will take place from 7 AM to 7 PM at the Local 2 San Francisco office (209 Golden Gate Ave.) with social-distancing protocols in place.  Remember to wear you mask!  To vote on the proposed By-Law, you must be a “member in good standing”, meaning that you have paid Union dues in January, or February, or March of 2021.

The text of the proposed By-Law change is:

For the purpose of determining eligibility to participate in Local 2’s internal governance in 2021, whether by attending and participating in membership meetings, voting, nominating candidates for office, being nominated and running for office, and/or serving on the election committee, a member shall be deemed to be a member in good standing during any month beginning with March 2020 when the member was on withdrawal status because the member was laid off or furloughed due to the Covid-19 pandemic and did not work in a Local 2 shop.

If the proposed By-Law change is approved, thousands of long-time Local 2 members  – laid-off since March of 2020 – will be able to attend Local 2 membership meetings and vote on important Local 2 Union business for the remainder of 2021.  This will include being able to vote in the Local 2 Union leadership elections in May of 2021.  This proposed By-Law change, if adopted, will expire at the end of 2021.  If the proposed By-Law change is defeated, the only members who can make decisions for the Union are those members who remain “members in good standing” and are currently paying dues.

 

El miércoles, 17 de marzo (¡Feliz Día de San Patricio!), el Local 2 realizará la votación de todo el día por voto secreto sobre una propuesta para modificar los Estatutos del Local 2.

La votación se llevará a cabo de las 7 AM a las 7 PM en la oficina del Local 2 en  San Francisco (209 Golden Gate Ave.) practicando todos los protocolos de distanciamiento social.  ¡No se le olvide llevar mascarilla!  Para votar sobre la propuesta de modificación de Estatutos, debe ser miembro “activo”, es decir, debe haber pagado las cuotas de Unión en enero, o febrero, o marzo de 2021.

Lo siguiente es el texto de la modificación de los Estatutos que se propone:

Con el objetivo de determinar si reúne los requisitos para participar en la gobernanza interna del Local 2 en el año 2021, ya sea por medio de asistir y participar en las reuniones de los miembros, votación, nominación de candidatos, ser nominado como candidato, o participar en el comité de elecciones, un miembro debe considerarse miembro activo durante cualquier mes a partir de marzo de 2020 cuando el miembro estaba de baja debido a despido/descanso/cesantía/lay-off por la pandemia del Covid-19 y no trabajó  en una compañía del Local 2.

Si es aprobada la modificación de los Estatutos, miles de miembros del Local 2 desde hace mucho tiempo –  que están sin trabajo desde Marzo de 2020 –  podrán asistir a las reuniones de los miembros del Local 2 y votar sobre las cuestiones importantes de la Unión Local 2 durante el resto del año 2021.  Incluso podrán votar en las elecciones de los líderes de la Unión Local 2 en mayo de 2021.  La propuesta de modificación de los Estatutos, si es aprobada, caducará al final de 2021.  En caso de que no se apruebe la modificación de los Estatutos, los únicos miembros que podrán tomar las decisiones para la Unión son los miembros que siguen siendo “miembros activos” y que actualmente están pagando las cuotas.

 

在3月17日星期三(聖帕德里節快樂!),二號工會將舉行一個有關二號工會章程改變建議的全天的,不記名投票。

投票將於上午7時至下午7時在三藩市二號工會辦公室(209 Golden Gate Ave.)舉行,並將實行社交距離。請記住戴口罩!要對建議章程投票,你必須是一名「良好的會員」,意指你在2021年一月,或二月,或三月有付工會費。

建議章程改變文本如下:

就決定在2021年參與二號工會內部管治資格目的而言,不論是出席或參與會員會議、投票、提名幹事候選人,被提名或競選幹事,及/或服務選舉委員會,從2020年3月開始的任何月份,由於該會員因Covid-19大流行而被裁員或放無薪假並且不在Local 2代表的公司工作時,該成員處於暫停會籍的狀態,則該會員應被視為信譽良好的成員 。

如通過改變章程建議,數以千計的二號工會會員 – 自2020年3月以來被裁員者 – 將可在2021年餘下日子參加二號工會會員會議和投票決定重要二號工會的事務。這將包括在2021年5月舉行的領導層選舉。如果獲得通過此提議,該修改的章程將在2021年結束時期滿。 如改變章程建議不獲通過,可以為工會做決定的會員是那些「保持良好資格」和目前有付工會費的會員。

New York Times report: Chase Center, Oracle Park workers fighting back!

New York Times report: Connie Sarmiento was one of 2,100 concessions workers terminated by the Golden State Warriors and San Francisco Giants’ food service contractor. UNITE HERE Local 2 members fought back, and terminations were rescinded at Oracle Park – but not at Chase Center.

Warriors, why won’t you protect us workers during #COVID19?

Vote NO on Prop 22

Uber, Lyft, and Doordash are spending $181 million to pass Prop 22. If they win, there will be a race to the bottom because corporations that do not follow basic labor laws, like minimum wage and workers’ compensation, will have an unfair advantage. Union jobs in hospitality, construction, retail, public transit and many other industries are at risk.

We say NO on Prop 22. Click here to go to www.sickofgiggreed.com and take the pledge to vote No on Prop 22.

Stop Corporate Greed: Vote YES on Prop 15 and NO on Prop 22

For years, corporations have used shady tactics to avoid paying their fair share in California. YES on Prop 15 and NO on Prop 22 will hold wealthy CEOs accountable so that our workforce, schools, and communities can thrive. This November, vote YES on Prop 15 and No on Prop 22 to put an end to corporate greed!

Voting YES on Prop 15 will reclaim $12 billion for schools and critical local services by closing property tax loopholes that benefit the wealthy. Vote YES on Prop 15! #YesOn15

Prop 22 will allow greedy corporations like Uber and Lyft to undermine workers. It’s time to turn all jobs into good jobs and provide protections for ALL working people. Vote NO on Prop 22! #NoOnProp22 #SickofGigGreed
