Carpenters Voice Support for California Assembly Bill 2011

Union Carpenters in hardhats and vests from across California gathered at the steps of the California State Capitol today to voice their support for AB2011 ahead of a crucial committee vote on Wednesday.

The essential workers cheered and waved signs as Assemblymember Buffy Wicks (D-Oakland),  Southwest Mountain States Regional Council of Carpenters (SWMSRCC) Executive Secretary-Treasurer Pete Rodriguez and Northern California Regional Council of Carpenters (NCCU) Executive Secretary-Treasurer Jay Bradshaw addressed the lively crowd. Ray Pearl, Executive Director of the California Housing Consortium and Abram Diaz, Policy Director of the Non-Profit Housing Association of Northern California also spoke, adding their support for AB 2011.

“Make no mistake about it,” said Pete Rodriguez, Executive Secretary-Treasurer of SWMSRCC, “AB2011 is a pro-worker bill that will help all workers building our housing projects earn good middle-class jobs with prevailing wages, healthcare and apprenticeship opportunities.”
