ONN – City Of City Workers March To Expose Severe Understaffing

, CA – On Wednesday, September 25, hundreds of city workers, and community leaders will hold an informational picket and rally to demand that the City Administration address alarming staff vacancy rates in city departments and take action to improve the retention of city staff in the face of starved city services.

This month, Senator Bernie Sanders, 2020 U.S. Presidential Candidate, in a tweet offered his support behind the City of Workers fight to fill hundreds of vacant city positions: “I stand with the 3,000 SEIU 1021 and IFPTE Local 21 public servants fighting to provide quality city services to the residents of . It’s unacceptable that 600 positions are currently unfilled.”

IFPTE Local 21 and SEIU 1021, the labor unions that represent more than 3,000 City of workers, and community leaders will expose the severe understaffing affecting residents at a noon event at 14th and Broadway in downtown .

The event marks the almost nine months into the 2019 collective bargaining fight between the City of and nearly 3,000 of its employees represented by SEIU 1021 and IFPTE Local 21—including engineers, librarians, planners, transportation and public works staff, street paving and cleaning crews, 911 dispatchers, neighborhood service coordinators, housing services staff, and Head Start program coordinators. Both unions’ contract expired on June 30, 2019 after City Administration failed to reach an agreement.

Now Note: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest version of an experimental Media mobile media video-blogging system network. This is a major part of our new approach to the production of media. The uploaded video is from a ger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Now site and -owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of , interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and also seek interested content and media technology partners.
