September 15, 2021 – The California Labor Movement made a huge difference in the overwhelming defeat of the attempt to recall Governor Newsom. Across the state we had boots on the ground and calls and texts being made right up until the polls closed. San Francisco did more than our part with a whopping 87 percent of us voting NO on the recall.
\We sent a clear message that California supports a strong Covid response, based in science and sound policies that keep us safe and on the path to recovery. We also sent a message that Californians will not put up with attempted power grabs that waste time, money, and distract from the real work that needs to be done.
We celebrate this resounding victory today. But tomorrow we will get back to work fighting for the issues so important to working people — including healthcare, rebuilding our economy, and providing safe and better working conditions across the state.
A huge thank you to all our volunteers for your time and leadership! We could not have done it without you!
