Bay Area Supports Hotel Workers and Demands Immediate End to Lockout
A community solidarity action to support hotel workers' struggle for healthcare and bargaining power (2-year contract) has been called by allies of the locked-out workers for Saturday, 11/20 in San Francisco.
The 14 locked-out hotels picked the wrong city to attack workers. San Francisco will show its solidarity with hotel workers by taking direct action, kicking off a new campaign of solidarity until the workers' demands are met. Healthcare is a human right the community pledges to defend.
Community allies demand from the hotels:
* An immediate end to the lockout
* No increase in worker contributions to the health care plan
* A contract length of two years
* Back pay for all workers since the beginning of the lockout
* An apology to the city of San Francisco
The Million Worker March Committee, SF Labor Council, UNITE-HERE Local 2, and ILWU Local 10 will hold a Rally and Picket on 11/20, starting at 11 a.m. at Union Square and marching to several locked-out hotels and finally to Justin Herman Plaza. To join the action, look for the "Community Solidarity" sign at Justin Herman Plaza... See you in the streets.
