Tom Ammiano stood before a small crowd of workers clad in purple T-shirts on the steps of City Hall and expressed the city's support for higher wages, affordable health insurance, and proper training.
Mayor Gavin Newsom also issued a statement saying, "I urge the involved parties to work more diligently towards a fair and reasonable settlement one that recognizes the economic concerns of the workers while at the same time respect[ing] the employers' need for operating flexibility within the wide range of facilities in which they provide security services."
Newsom also asked commercial-building owners and managers to involve themselves in the negotiation process with the security companies in order to set new industry standards. The Building Owners and Managers Association did not return our call seeking comment on the strike and related issues.
