Local 3 and the Building and Construction Trades Council: May Day Rally

Local 3 and the Building and Construction Trades Council of Alameda County mobilized hundreds of union workers and supporters as they marched through the streets of Oakland to a rally at Frank Ogawa Plaza on Wednesday, May 1 in observance of International Workers’ Day, commonly known as May Day. The march was organized in protest of the City of Oakland refusing to implement a Project Labor Agreement (PLA) and allowing contractors to bring in out-of-area workers on city projects. The march and rally were covered by local news outlets, including KPIX and KTVU.
