SEIU 1021 Tenderloin Housing Clinic workers rallied and spoke out about the efforts of Executive Director Randy Shaw to attack their healthcare benefits and other conditions. Shaw and THC also publish "Beyond Chron" but there has been no coverage of this story and the firing of SEIU 1021 shop steward and other workers at the clinic who charge they have been illegally discriminated against because of their race and union activity.

Action against a union buster. Here's what the flyer for the event said:
Let's Send The Message to Randy Shaw: If You're Pro-Labor Then Quit Stalling The Arbitration Process for Nate Holmes!
Monday, July 13, 2009
Note: This is about Randy Shaw, not Modern Times Bookstore.
Last year Randy Shaw, Executive Director of the Tenderloin Housing Clinic (THC), unjustly terminated Nate Holmes' for being an active, militant union member in the workplace. Shaw is known for writing on progressive issues and has a new book out on Cesar Chavez that he will be presenting at Modern Times bookstore as part of LaborFest this year. This is precisely why Shaw should know better than to treat workers, especially workers of color like Nate, with contempt and to flagrantly violate the union contract that protects them.
Please join community activists and union members to let Randy Shaw know that writing books doesn't let him off the hook. His event will be at 7pm, but we will be meeting at 6:30pm outside of Modern Times bookstore to let those who are coming to hear Shaw's presentation know the truth!
