Support the CLEAN Car Wash Campaign
UAW 2865 has endorsed and has been actively supporting the CLEAN Car Wash Campaign for nearly two years.
CLEAN stands for Community-Labor-Environmental Action Network. It is a diverse coalition of nonprofit organizations committed to improving the lives of working families in greater Los Angeles. Car wash workers are some of the hardest working and most exploited workers in our city, often working for less than minimum wage and without basic protections required by the law.
The CLEAN Car wash Campaign is a joint effort of CLEAN and the Car wash Workers Organizing Committee (CWOC) of the United Steelworkers to raise car wash workers’ standard of living, to secure basic workplace protections and to address the serious environmental and safety hazards in the Los Angeles car wash industry.
Together the CLEAN car wash campaign coalition is working to support car wash workers who are standing up for their rights, to improve health and safety protections for the 7,000-10,000 car wash workers in the greater Los Angeles area, and to help to keep the water and environment clean for LA communities.
