NEW, EXPANDED PICKET SCHEDULE...
We will now be doing early-morning pickets FIVE days per week.

In the wake of the successful April 12 Siege,
which virtually shut down the hotel,
we have decided to expand the picket schedule...

Here is the new schedule:

Every WEDNESDAY, THURSDAY and FRIDAY
7am to 8am
3pm to 5:30pm

Every SATURDAY and SUNDAY
7am to 8am

Hotel Frank
Geary and Mason
San Francisco

Hotel Frank was auctioned off in a foreclosure sale in May, 2010 by WELLS FARGO.
The bank then sold the hotel to a financial speculator called AEW CAPITAL MANAGEMENT.
The hotel is now managed by a company called PROVENANCE.
(But ask again tomorrow...)

Since the foreclosure sale:

• Management refuses to recognize the Union contract that existed for nearly 40 years.
• The hotel did not pay one penny for medical coverage or pensions for almost two years.
• We all have to work an extra half-hour per day for free.
• Room cleaners clean many more rooms, even if it means skipping breaks and meal periods.
• Staffing has been cut at the front desk and in housekeeping, while the workload has increased.
• A federal judge has found the hotel guilty of firing and disciplining workers for Union activities
