In the face of anti-worker attacks like the impending Janus v. AFSCME Supreme Court case, our union has created our Together We Rise campaign to say loud and proud that #AmericaNeedsUnions. We are committed to resisting these attacks and building a stronger union through member engagement, leadership development, and political mobilization.
Part of that commitment involves identifying and developing 1,001 new leaders like Lawrence; workers who not only give back to our community every day on the job but who lead the way to ensure that their co-workers’ union rights are protected.
Lawrence was born and raised in Bakersfield and was taught by his parents to give back to our community in whatever ways he can. As a Weights and Measures Inspector, Lawrence’s work helps keep our community honest and builds trust. Learn more about his story by watching the short video below.
