About the Northern California Coalition of Black Trade Unionists

Now in our 41st year, we are still following in the footsteps of our chapter founder, Geraldine M. Johnson: that is, we are serving as the independent voice of Black Labor.

Our work could not have been possible without the involvement, support and work from our unions, as well as community-based and faith-based organizations. Below are some examples of our collaborations:

  • For these past couple of years in both the East Bay and San Francisco, we have worked to gain Local Hire.
  • We have worked with the NAACP to bring quality education to our students.
  • We worked together with the Baptist Church to help mobilize the seniors in the community to get out the vote.
  • Our Community Action and Response Against Toxic (CARAT) Team trained the students of the Cypress Mandela Training Center in both Toxic Awareness and Cardiovascular Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) .
