We Rise With Kingspan Workers
CLUE is so privileged to rise with the brave workers of Kingspan Light + Air in Santa Ana, who are demanding clean air, living wages, and that their management provide a fair process to join the Sheet Metal Air Rail and Transportation Workers (SMART) union!
After months of organizing underground, these workers went public on Tuesday October 19th, along with a delegation of community and faith leaders.
“Kingspan and other corporations like them are responsible to the communities in which they do business. And workers negatively impacted by such enterprises have the right to ask that those issues be redressed in a fair manner.”– Rev. Adiel DePano, lead pastor at Santa Ana United Methodist Church

During the worst of the COVID pandemic, our sisters and brothers who work in the grocery chains kept the shelves stocked, worked as cashiers, and staffed the deli and meat counters. In short, they helped us get our food. They did this at real risk to their own health. Some of them died.

Grocery Workers across So Cal continue to demand decent pay and fair scheduling even as they ponder a decision to strike.
A January 2022 Economic Roundtable report highlighted the desperate plights of grocery workers including low-wages and last-minute scheduling that sends them scrambling to find childcare and transportation.
