Visit these websites for more information about these California Propositions that we have taken a stance on as Labor:
No on Prop 22:
Current law requires app companies to provide their drivers with basic benefits and protections, but because the billion-dollar companies don’t want to pay, they are trying to buy themselves a special exemption in the law to avoid having to pay their share to keep drivers safe on the job.
Yes on Prop 15:
California is giving away billions of in property tax breaks to wealthy corporations. While the wealthiest corporations avoid paying their fair share, our schools have the most crowded classrooms in the nation and our local communities are struggling to respond to the impact of COVID-19; Prop 15 closes those loopholes. We believe that large corporations should pay their fair share.

No on Measure U:
Measure U is a Dangerous proposal to defund fire protection services by $40 million for residents in the communities served by the San Bernardino County Fire Protection District. This measure will close local Fire Stations and raise Homeowner Insurance Premiums over $500 a year.
Yes on Measure J:
Measure J will modernize San Bernardino County’s charter- laws that govern our community- by removing sexist language, closing political loopholes, putting a stop to Governors hands in local matters, and increasing transparency in our local government.
No on Measure K:
Measure K will reduce the Board of Supervisors accountability to the public by shortening term limits, eliminating the need for voter consent to impose new property taxes, and cutting Board Members’ pay to a part-time salary; this will encourage them to accept more money from lobbyists and special interest organizations, increasing corruption and the return of pay-to-play politics.
