Workers' Rights

As a former teacher and officer in her teachers’ union, Barbara strongly supports the right of workers to organize and bargain collectively for fair wages and working conditions, a right guaranteed by our State Constitution. She received the Friend of Labor Award in 2007 from the Mid-state Central Labor Council for her strong and consistent support for working people, such as advocating for the employees of a local skilled-nursing facility.

Barbara is a strong defender of Labor Rights, standing side-by-side with local workers as they seek to organize and collectively bargain for fair wages and better working conditions.
