#BlackLivesMatter trade union march, San Francisco, USA

This 6 June 2020 video from the USA says about itself:

Black Lives Matter! Labor & Community March & Rally At Gilman Park In SF

Hundreds of Northern California trade unionists from the SEIU and other unions rallied and marched in San Francisco’s Hunters Point Bay View district protesting the murder of George Floyd and many other Blacks.

Many called for the defunding of the police and also for the police unions to be thrown out of the labor movement.

There were speakers about the systemic discrimination against Black workers in San Francisco, including illegal retaliation of [trade union] stewards and also the failure of CCSF to provide proper PPE for frontline workers many of whom are Black and Latino.

Community members also spoke out about the treatment of the community by the San Francisco police department.

The City & Country of San Francisco is also cutting public workers and there is 90% unemployment in the hotel industry among Unite-HERE Local 2 members and 100% unemployment among IATSE members.
