USA: Fe y Justicia Worker Center, Houston – Worker Memorial Week: Day of Action Update

With our wonderful partners from AFL-CIO, Building Trades Union, Workers Defense Project, and LIUNA, we came to the Houston City Council meeting today to remind them of how unsafe conditions end in fatalities.

A couple highlights from the action: (1) As our executive director read the names of the workers who died in 2017, all city council members stood up, and (2) five council members said they were interested in taking action to stop more deaths through the Responsible Bidder Ordinance and further conversation with us.
