2016 HONOREES

Gail Bateson, retiring Executive Director of Worksafe - Gail Bateson has provided critical leadership as Worksafe's Executive Director over the past seven years, during which time she worked tirelessly to advance Worksafe's mission. Her countless contributions to worker health and safety over several decades reflect a unique vision and understanding of the importance of healthy and safe jobs.

The Justice at Taylor Farms Campaign - Food processing workers at Taylor Farms in Tracy, California are leading this dynamic and fearless campaign. Supported by Teamsters in California and nationwide, these workers are fighting for health, safety, and dignity on the job, in the face of ceaseless opposition and intimidation by the company.

Street Level Health Project - This year's Frances Schreiberg Award honors the dedicated leadership at Street Level Health Project for their work to develop and grow the Oakland Workers' Collective. The OWC is a unique and multifaceted project, fostering solidarity among day laborers, increasing their job preparedness, ensuring their awareness of workplace health and safety issues and rights, and providing opportunities for civic engagement.
