Hundreds of people participated in the 6th Annual OCLF Labor Day Celebration at the Santa Ana Zoo along with hundreds of union and community members. They were celebrating the labor movement and workers standing together, fighting for good jobs, bargaining to uplift workers and our communities.

Here is a slideshow of photos taken at the event by our Senior Photographer Lou Delgado of Spotlight Photography and Associates. Lou is a political and entertainment event photographer in Orange County as well as a Democratic Party political activist. IF YOU DON’T HAVE PICTURES OF YOUR EVENT, IT DIDN’T HAPPEN.

This Labor Day, it is important to remember that the fight continues for basic workers protections. Organized workers are fighting for a seat at the table, fighting furloughs and layoffs, tax breaks for corporations and earned paid sick leave. They’re standing for immigration reform and legislation to protect immigrants from exploitation. The list goes on.

When workers stand together, anything is possible and that is why we’ve got to show our strength as we go to the polls this November and support candidates that will work hard on behalf of working families. The Committee on Political Education (COPE) met last week and interviewed candidates for local city councils and school boards. The committee then recommended candidates for endorsement to the Executive Board and Delegate body and were voted on this past Thursday.
