Resolution on Schwarzenegger’s Attack on Public Workers

Whereas, the attack by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to cut workers’ wages, lay off around a thousand state workers, increase student fees thereby blocking access to marginalized students, as well as cutting the services of millions of Californians, and  

Whereas, the Democrats along with the Republicans are responsible for this financial and fiscal crisis through cost shifting to workers and students, deregulations, privatization to support capitalist control of energy, healthcare, housing, education, and transportation, and 
 

Whereas, the Democrats along with the Republicans are responsible for this financial and fiscal crisis as a direct result of cost shifting to workers and students through deregulations, privatization and supporting capitalist control of energy, healthcare, housing, education, and transportation, and 

Whereas, organized labor and students have the responsibility, power, and statewide organization to challenge these attacks,
 

Therefore be it resolved, the Peace and Freedom Party supports all public workers in California in the event of a statewide public workers strike of state, local, and county workers, teachers, and students in the UC and the CSU system, and
 

Peace and Freedom Party supports the call for such a day of action by AFT 2121, San Francisco Labor Council and the 2008 California AFL-CIO convention and will encourage all its public worker and student members to support this action in their locals and among all 1.5 million public workers in California.


Adopted by the State Central Committee on August 3, 2008
