Workforce Development

Through our workforce development program, immigrant day laborers and domestic workers are trained and supported to obtain daily employment through a democratically run hiring process at the day labor center.

Workers acquire job skills and knowledge of how to protect oneself on the job through trainings at CLG. These trainings are facilitated by CLG staff, community partners and volunteers and are specific to jobs that day laborers and domestic workers do on a daily basis.

English language instruction, which is offered daily at the center, is another avenue for workers to gain essential workplace protection skills. By being able to speak English, workers can communicate to their employers on the job. As a result they can request the tools and protective equipment they need to work as well as advocate for their rights as workers when negotiating wages and breaks and reporting workplace safety issues.

Rights education and wage theft protection are also key components to CLG’s workforce development programming. Rights education empowers workers to advocate for themselves on the job and results in fair wages, dignified jobs, safe working conditions and protection against wage theft. CLG staff provides support for workers who do experience wage theft by teaching them how to file wage claims with the local labor commission.

CLG staff has gained comprehensive occupational health and safety training experience through organizational partnerships with UC Berkeley Labor and Occupational Health Program and the National Day Labor Organizing Network. These partnerships have supported CLG with the integration of both effective training methods and long-term capacity building in the area of occupational health and safety. OSH training topics include, but are not limited to Chemical Hazard Awareness: Toxic Cleaners and Green Cleaning Options, Ergonomics Overview, Emphasis on Safe Lifting/Moving Techniques, Ladder Safety, Heat Illness Prevention, Effective Communication: How to Talk about Health and Safety, Training of Trainers: How to Teach Adults about Health and Safety, Noise and Hearing Conservation, Work Stress: Coping Strategies, Gardening Hazards and Solutions, Construction Safety: Fall, Struck-By, Electrocution, and Caught In-Between Hazards.

CLG’s health and well-being program emphasizes prevention, wellness and self-care. Day laborers and domestic workers are particularly vulnerable and underserved community members who often do not seek medical help or preventive services until they are seriously ill or injured. CLG addresses health/work needs by providing access to services and education while workers wait for work at the Center each day, including: weekly health talks by local community health agencies, diabetes/STI screening, health consultations, mental health support, food distribution, and referrals. In addition, the CLG Health Coordinator trains workers to be health promoters utilizing an evidence–based curriculum called Your Heart, Your Life. This curriculum promotes healthy eating and active lifestyles. Workers who receive the training then become health promoters and implement the curriculum with the broader population of workers.

Population(s) Served

As a worker and member-led organization, Centro Laboral de Graton organizes with day laborers and domestic workers around local, statewide, and national campaigns for workers and immigrants rights. Members meet twice weekly during the general assembly to discuss programming, share concerns about work or daily life, and to create collaborative solutions to collective problems they face. In recanter years CLG members were active in winning the California Domestic Worker Bill of Rights, which for the first time in U.S. History, extended over time pay to all domestic workers. In addition, members collaborated with the local police chief and mayor of the City of Sebastopol to pass a resolution that would minimize vehicle impounds of undocumented immigrant drivers who will become eligible for drivers licenses in 2015. CLG supports the leadership development of members by offering a democratic decision-making process that governs daily programming and the hiring process at the day labor center, as well as leadership development workshops and political analysis.
