Fri May 6 2011 (Updated 05/07/11) On the Picket Line at Hotel Frank, Workers Shout "No Contract, No Peace!"
Hotel Frank Employees and Allies Unite to Fight for Workers' Rights Auctioned off in a foreclosure sale one year ago, San Francisco's Hotel Frank in Union Square is now being run by anti-union hotel management company Provenance Hotels. Provenance has not honored the existing union contract; amongst other things it does not to contribute to workers' medical care and pensions. Staffing levels have decreased since Provenance took over and the management company has been charged with violating federal labor laws by the National Labor Relations Board. Meanwhile, local jazz club Yoshi's is getting a discount rate from Hotel Frank management and asking its musicians to cross a picket line and stay at the hotel while they are in town for performances.

Last week, the Portland Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) and Seattle Solidarity Network organized a Day of Solidarity with Hotel Frank workers, holding picket lines at Provenance hotels in those cities.

Hotel Frank is under boycott and workers are picketing the hotel regularly on Wednesdays from 3:00 to 5:30pm and Fridays from 1:00 to 5:30pm.
