In San Francisco, Tenants Use Labor Tactics to Challenge Their Landlords

 Renters in San Francisco are striking against the city’s largest corporate landlord, Veritas Investments, for unaddressed safety violations, unfair rent increases, and several other complaints. Striking tenants are withholding their rent and are protected from eviction by San Francisco’s 2022 Union at Home ordinance - the first legislation of its kind in the country that lays out a path for tenants to form their own associations and requires landlords to bargain with them, just as an employer must negotiate with unionized workers. In one of the most expensive cities in the world, can a union model work for residents the same way it does for laborers to keep the working class housed?
