Once again, ULTCW stepped up and set the example for others to follow. Through the hard work and dedication of ULTCW members and staff, we had a profound impact in electing local leaders who understand the importance of the work we do as long term care providers and share in our mission to bring social and economic justice to all working families.
Because of our Local’s incredible work, on Tuesday, Los Angeles City residents elected ULTCW endorsed candidates Mike Feuer as City Attorney, Ron Galperin as City Controller, and City Council members Gil Cedillo (District 1) and Curren Price (District 9). Although Wendy Greuel did not win the race for Mayor, it was our GOTV efforts in South Los Angeles that resulted in voters within the area turning out to vote and overwhelmingly supporting Wendy.
Congratulations to all who were involved and played a leadership role in this great success.
Los Angeles – On Thursday, a day likely to coincide with the Senate Judiciary Committee adding finishing touches to their version of an immigration reform bill, a diverse and broad coalition of California-based organizations fighting for an inclusive and direct path to citizenship, meets in Los Angeles to fire the next salvo, this time targeting Members of the House.

The California Table was formed in 2009 to raise collective concerns and support for fair and humane immigration policies in California and nationally.

Stop the Koch brothers from buying the news.
The Koch brothers are famous for their right-wing ideology and their bankrolling of ultra-conservative, union busting organizations. Now they want to buy up influential print newspapers, turning reliable media outlets into their own versions of Fox News.
We rely on our local newspapers for smart, unbiased reporting and thorough investigations about what’s happening in our communities. And we count on well-researched and untainted endorsements of political candidates on the editorial pages.
If the oil-billionaire Koch brothers take over these papers, we can expect a lot of changes to these reputable papers.
Our local media is no place for right-wing propaganda.
ULTCW members joined with thousands of activists and took to the streets of downtown Los Angeles, downtown Oakland and San Bernardino on Wednesday to participate in May Day protests in support of Commonsense Comprehensive Immigration Reform.
The marches and rallies were headed by community organizations, faith-based leaders and labor unions that support the current Commonsense Comprehensive Immigration reform bill that keeps families together and offers a clear pathway to citizenship for immigrants that are in the United States.
