Councilmember Curren Price, Workers Protest Union-Busting

During an early morning rally on March 22 at Grand Park in front of Los Angeles City Hall, Councilmember Curren Price stood in solidarity alongside thousands of local labor union members, clergy and community members to protest the tactics Amazon is using in its attempt to curb their workers’ rights to organize- as most recently seen in Bessemer, Alabama.

Councilman Price and allies marched from Grand Park to the headquarters of the Law Offices of Morgan Lewis, a firm that is being used by Amazon and other large corporations to discourage workers from forming unions, and take a stand against the entities who profit off of suppressing workers’ voices. 

“From Los Angeles to Bessemer and beyond, our essential workers are deserving of respect, dignity and advancement,” added Price. “I hope that powerful companies like Amazon get the message that it’s morally wrong to exploit and bully their employees, and we won’t let them get away with it; not today, tomorrow, and especially during a pandemic!”
