SF Board of Supervisors Passes Resolution in Support of Monster Cable Workers

On Tues., Feb. 13, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors passed a resolution in support of the laid-off Monster Cable workers and their demands for a fair severance and community fund. The resolution passed 8 to 3, with Jew, Elsbernd, and Alioto-Pier voting no.

“Despite company efforts to lobby the Board of Supervisors with propaganda, yesterday’s vote shows the commitment of the Board to support workers in reaching a solution with Monster Cable,” says community organizer Shaw San Liu. “It's unfortunate that the company focuses resources on PR, instead of working with laid-off workers and the community to resolve their demands and find ways to support workers. We call on consumers and retailers to support the boycott of Monster Cable products until the company resolves workers demands fairly.”
