Save the date and help raise the minimum wage in Oakland!


Local 21 and our allies will be kicking off the minimum wage campaign on Saturday, Sept. 6, at 10 a.m., with a brief mobilization, after which members will hit the streets and talk to voters to help Lift Up Oakland.

This campaign is committed to running a strong field effort and talking directly with voters. The best way to cut through the clutter and cynicism is personal contact, and to run this type of campaign Local 21 members are being called on to help out.
