California IBEW Brothers and Sisters,

Millionaires who want to roll back worker protections in California are funneling big money into a campaign to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom. If they are successful, we’ll lose many of the hard-fought gains we’ve made on higher wages and safety on the job.

The recall backers are part of a national network of anti-union interests that includes billionaire funders that attack prevailing wages, project labor agreements, union jobs, pensions, minimum wage laws and voting rights.

Local 11 Business Manager Joël Barton meeting with Gov. Gavin Newsom in Sacramento.

California’s laws to protect workers are the strongest in the nation. Under Gov. Newsom’s leadership, we’ve secured major gains for IBEW members. All that we’ve fought for to win project labor agreements, stronger health and safety protections, electric vehicle infrastructure, higher wages are at risk with the anti-union recall.

The funders of this recall want to roll back our progress. Combined, these corporate funders of the recall have spent tens of millions of dollars attacking unions and our agenda to protect workers. The anti-union recall backers want to lower wages, eliminate health and safety laws and kill union jobs.

Make no mistake: The recall is a sneak attack on our jobs, wages, benefits and union.

We can’t afford to allow anti-union special interests to seize control of California. The recall risks undermining and dramatically weakening our shared commitment to creating opportunity for all working people and families. Join IBEW and our union in voting NO to the anti-worker recall! Learn more at

Look for your ballot in the mail around mid-August and make sure to VOTE NO ON THE ANTI-UNION RECALL by Sept. 14th!

In Solidarity,

The Unions, Brothers, and Sisters of the California State Association of Electrical Workers
