IBEW 1245 joined our brothers and sisters affiliated with the North Bay Labor Council to celebrate a small victory in the ongoing fight for a decent living wage ordinance.
Supervisors Susan Gorin and James Gore have put a halt to the flawed living wage ordinance the county originally planned to put in place. That ordinance greatly curtailed and limited recipients who truly needed a real and honest minimum wage ordinance. The County’s consultants had gutted and stripped the potential ordinance if all the work our labor-friendly friends had put into it.
Today, the County Supervisors will pull that ordinance off the table and again sit down with labor to work on a decent and just living wage ordinance.
