When you ride up the hill to Cal State East Bay from Harder Road, you may notice something new at the cemetery.

The SEIU Local 265 labor union representatives have been picketing at the Holy Angels Holy Sepulchre Catholic Cemetery in Hayward since April, however, their presence has increased in the past few weeks. The union workers went more than four years without a contract, which they eventually received last year. They are now picketing over what union representative Michael Tynan called “unfair labor practices and grievances.”

This is the fourth time that Local 265 has picketed outside of Holy Sepulchre. The first occurred in April 2006, the second in September 2013 and the third was in July 2014.

“How could I live with myself if I did nothing in the face of injustice,” Tynan said. “You have to fight for what’s right, that’s all we’re doing.”
