The Orange County Labor Federation (OCLF) has named Gloria Alvarado as the OCLF’s new interim executive director.
From the press release:
Gloria brings a unique balance of mission focus, analytical depth, and steadiness to OCLF.
“I am grateful to the board and delegates for the opportunity to lead this exceptional organization, which is not only transforming the lives of working people in Orange County, but also building worker power through union organizing, political education and leadership training programs that give working people a voice to improve their lives.”
OCLF fired longtime executive director Julio Perez earlier this year in the wake of a months long investigation into sexual harassment and abuse that originated with #metoo social media posts from former interns in late 2017. OC’s pro labor and progressive community continues to remains silent on criticism of Perez’s actions.
