Today we lost a legend in the labor movement, a champion for workers’ rights, and a dear friend of the Labor Center — Richard Trumka. We are all deeply saddened by this unexpected news.
We are pleased to announce that Mara Ortenburger has joined the Labor Center as coordinator of student field programs!
The Labor Center is working to provide research on how California is experiencing the COVID-19 pandemic; analysis of new policies, what they offer the state’s workers and businesses, and what is still needed; and curated lists of resources, information, and tools for workers and their advocates.
A list of California city and county ordinances, proclamations, mayoral directives, and orders that expand labor standards for workers affected by the pandemic, such as paid sick leave, health care, worker retention/right of return, and policies that lift workers’ voices in firm, industry, and government responses to the pandemic.
