ALAMEDA, California: Workers at the recycling sorting facility of Alameda County Industries speak at a meeting of the Alameda City Council. Workers voted for Local 6 of the ILWU in December, and ask the city council to support their effort, since they recycle the trash from Alameda. They hold up photographs of the vote count, to show the city that they have made the decision to join the union and negotiate a union contract. Using the photographs in this way is a project of a group of social movement photographers, Class Conscious Photographers. - David Bacon - 2015-02-03
