A New Labor Movement
Workers and Communities Unite
We honor Labor Day in support of union power and collective bargaining rights
Today, the struggle for labor and workers' rights is as relevant as ever.
It may have taken a global pandemic and decades of a two-party monopoly's corporate-serving policies but we are seeing a wave of emerging labor mobilization.
Teachers, nurses, hotel workers, fast-food workers, and many other front-line, exploited workers are building a labor movement that is advancing beyond the union executive offices and mobilizing on our streets and communities, with three times more workers organizing strikes in 2022 than 2021.
Workers in industries that were traditionally not unionized are forming unions faster and more successfully than in the past 20 years. Amazon, Starbucks, Apple, REI, and Trader Joe’s are being unionized! The approval for unions in the US is at 71%, the highest it's been since 1965.
We all know that any labor movement needs a corporate-free political party to pass pro-worker legislation just as surely as workers need a strong labor movement. As articulated in the Green Party of California's EcoSocialist platform, we believe that workers and communities must democratically own and control the means of production and fairly benefit from its outcome.
