"It's an honor and I look forward to bringing my expertise and background in labor and within the Teamsters organization to better serve the residents of the City and County of San Francisco," Sandoval said. "I hope to bring a unique perspective—the perspective of labor—to this commission. Human rights, labor rights, and civil rights have historically always been interconnected, and at their core, aim to ensure dignity, equality, respect, and fairness for all individuals within society. As a commissioner, I look forward to having an impact to enhance the working conditions and lives of all working people."

The San Francisco Human Rights Commission works in service of the city's anti-discrimination laws to further racial solidarity, equity, and healing.

"Congratulations to Brother Sandoval on his appointment to this very important commission," said Anthony M. Rosa, Director of the Teamsters Human Rights and Diversity Commission. "The Teamsters could not be more excited to have a seat at the table to advocate for our rank-and-file members in San Francisco. We are confident that Robert Sandoval will be a terrific addition to the commission, and he will ensure workers' voices are heard."
