Extending Collective Bargaining Rights to Tenants: Early Lessons from San Francisco’s Union-at-Home Ordinance
Please join the UC Berkeley Labor Center and Housing Rights Committee of San Francisco for a conversation about the early successes and challenges of San Francisco’s Union-At-Home ordinance. The ordinance, which took effect in April 2022, is a first-in-the-nation law that extends collective-bargaining rights to San Francisco tenants.
During this webinar, a UCB Labor Center research team will present a short overview of their findings from an implementation study of the Union-At-Home ordinance. Afterwards, the research team will moderate a panel discussion with four people who have been deeply involved in tenant organizing at the local, state, and national levels. Panelists will discuss the importance of tenant organizing, the strengths and weaknesses of San Francisco’s ordinance, and what it would take to expand the model to other cities and to state and federal levels.
