Berkeley Tenants Union Spring Campaign: Seismic Safety
San Francisco Tenants to Pay for Retrofit of Unsafe Buildings: Don’t Let This Happen in Berkeley!
San Francisco just passed a law requiring unsafe buildings to retrofit — something Berkeley leaders have been “working out” since 2005! However, San Francisco laws currently allow landlords to put 100% of the cost onto the renters! That city says they are working on follow-up rules that would limit the increases on low-income tenants. Here at home, seismic safety is one of BTU’s top priorities, and we don’t want to see tenants pay for something that ought to be a given — living in a building that won’t kill them! Come to our monthly potluck on April 10th to learn how you can help!
