The Lives of Union Apprentices

This publication has not been shy about expressing its support for union labor and the need to include apprentice labor on development sites in Oakland. 

Union apprentices are vital to building Oakland’s middle class and making sure workers are paid family-sustaining wages.

Our publisher has created two videos to highlight the backgrounds and stories of several constructions trades’ apprentices working in Oakland. These apprentices are sheet metal workers, electricians, plumbers and sprinkler fitters.

They each have an interesting story to tell.
