Labor Studies at City College This Fall


Members,

 The San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council has developed a great partnership with City College in recent years to teach labor studies classes for our members and the community at large.  It’s provided a great opportunity to educate San Diego about their rights at work and the rich history of the Labor Movement.  This fall Jim Miller will be teaching Labor and Politics on Tuesday nights, and Dovie King will be teaching Labor Law on Monday nights.  Anyone who hasn’t had the opportunity to learn from Jim and Dovie are definitely missing out, and this is a great opportunity to grow in the labor movement or get a first good introduction.

 It is also very important that we show broad interest in these classes if we want them to continue to be offered in the future.  This is an important part of building a stronger labor movement in the broader community and we should do our best to support it.  Click here: LS 108 and 102 flyer f13.pdf  for information about the classes.

Brown
Governor signs budget
California's new 2015-16 budget increases education funding over last year's level by $7.6 billion. When combined with increases of $6.1 billion in 2013-14 and 2014-15 as well as other one-time savings and adjustments in those years, there has been an increased investment in K-14 education of more than $14 billion.
Pensions
Proposed ballot measure takes aim at retirement security
Anti-pension politicians have revived their effort to deny retirement security for public servants such as classified employees, teachers, police officers and firemen by filling a statewide ballot initiative that would eliminate secure pensions for all new employees without guaranteeing any other type of retirement benefit in return.
