March 19, 2019 – New Zealand Massacre & Labor Fighting Back and UC CWA UPTE Workers Strike

WorkWeek radio looks at the rise of fascists and racist terror in New Zealand with the massacre of 50 Muslims and the wounding of many others. We talk with New Zealand Unite unionist Joe Carolan who is a senior organizer for casino and security. He is also a member of Socialist Aotearoa group. He talks about the rise of racism, fascism and the role of Trump in inciting xenophobia and attacks on immigrants along with New Zealand government officials. He reports that the leader of the Greens was physically assaulted the day before the massacre.
Next, we talk about the upcoming strike of CWA Union of Professional and Technical Employees UPTE and AFSCME 3299 at all UC campuses. We talk with UC UPTE members Kelsey Zorn and Lisa Milos who both work at UCSF.
