American Sign Language interpreters struck Purple Communications Inc. on Monday in a lively show of outrage over the company’s latest unfair labor practices.
CWA and Pacific Media Workers Guild staffers Sara Steffens and Autumn Grace join SF Labor Council Executive Director Tim Paulson at a labor action in San Francisco. The “End the Gridlock Now” posters were designed and printed by Guild union shop Design Action Collective.
In an historic first, representatives of Purple Communications met with a Pacific Media Workers Guild Local 39521 bargaining team in a San Francisco hotel yesterday. The meeting kicked off negotiations for a labor agreement to cover Purple’s Video Interpreters in the Arizona, Denver, Oakland and San Diego centers.
