7pm HALLOWEEN SUNDAY Flying Picket.Meet at the corner of Powell & Geary in Union Square

The lockout of Hotel Workers in San Francisco has been going on for a month now. The mayor has now called for a boycott of all 14 hotels involved. Each week this Flying Picket travels from one picket line to another to show solidarity with the hotel workers. The workers are energized by us and we them. It's important and fun! Bring signs and noise makers. Costumes welcome. "Local 2, we're with you"

What's it about?
One of the main issues in this struggle is health care coverage. Hotel owners want to increase workers' payments for health care from $10/month to $273/month. This would mean that most of these low-wage workers would lose their health care coverage altogether.
