California IATSE Council Issues Statement on October 2021 LA County Fed Meeting

The California IATSE Council cannot, and will not, tolerate racism in any form. What took place at the October 2021 meeting flies in the face of everything that we stand for. The core value of the Labor movement is equality and justice for all without regard for the color of your skin, the language you speak or who you choose to love. We represent all our IATSE members with that commitment first and foremost. The CIC is appalled by the behavior and racist comments expressed at that meeting. We join with many others in calling for the immediate resignations of all Los Angeles City Council members who were involved.
