Local 33 Donates $7,500 to No on Prop 32 Campaign
Updated On: Jan 05, 2013

IATSE Local 33 recently donated $7,500 to support an event at the Nokia Theatre for the No on Prop 32 campaign. Our photo shows Board member Bill Ford with Keynote speakers and IBEW members Brian D'Arcy (on the left) and Martin Ludlow (on the right); also appearing were actor Edward James Olmos and musicians Crosby, Stills & Nash.

Why is the local fighting this proposition? Here's what the California Labor Federation has to say about Proposition 32:

"Proposition 32, a measure appearing on the November statewide ballot, is not what it seems. While it claims to be about 'stopping special interests' the measure actually gives special exemptions to corporate special interests and Super PACs. It would do nothing to fix what’s broken in Sacramento. Instead, Prop 32 would give even more power to the wealthy and well-connected to influence elections, control government and weaken our state’s middle class.

"The millionaire backers misleadingly call it 'The Stop Special Interest Money Now Act,' claiming it would rein in campaign contributions by both unions and corporations. In fact, the deceptive wording of the initiative specifically limits the voice of union members like our local teachers and nurses and the firefighters and police that keep us safe.

"This one-sided measure would make our system even more imbalanced and it does nothing to stop the flow of money from the wealthy in politics."
