Metro Nashville School Board Endorsements

The CLC is proud to announce the endorsement of Metro Nashville and Davidson County School Board candidates Thomas “TC” Weber of District 2, Tyese Hunter of District 6, and Gini Pupo Walker of District 8. Candidates submitted questionnaires pertaining to their commitment to students, workers, and support staff as well as met with local union delegates to discuss the candidate's awareness and concern regarding our affiliates’ pressing issues. CLC is confident these school board candidates, once elected, will fulfill their commitment to prioritize the needs and well-being of Nashville students, workers, and the greater community.

Election day is August 2nd. Early voting runs July 13 - 28.

Workers Compensation Information

This morning we had the pleasure of being trained on TN Workers Comp rights by Jeff Francis from the TN Bureau of Workers' Compensation. Many many workers, stewards, and even union reps don't know all of their rights under Workers Comp. Please familiarize yourselves with the following information (download here) to guarantee that injured workers receive all benefits entitled to them by law.

If you have any questions about Workers Compensation, feel free to visit https://www.tn.gov/workforce/injuries-at-work/ or contact Jeff Francis, 615-532-4812, b.jeff.francis@tn.gov.

Support A Strong Community Benefits Agreement On Soccer Stadium Development

Last night at our monthly meeting, the CLC voted unanimously to sign a letter of support for a Community Benefits Agreement, including good jobs, affordable housing, and community/cultural amenities, on the Soccer Stadium and the corresponding 10-acre development.

Stand Up Nashville, of which the CLC is a founding member, is currently in negotiations with the team owners to ensure this development is a good use of public resources and directly benefits our neighborhoods and city residents, especially those most vulnerable to displacement and un/underemployment.

We are calling on our affiliates and allies to sign on as organizational supporters too. Click HERE to see the letter and contact Michael Callahan-Kapoor at mcallahankapoor@nashvilleclc.org to add your organization's name.

Thank you for your solidarity!
