On Wednesday February 15, members of UNITE HERE Local 2 will be joined by community allies and other Bay Area workers in launching the Hotel Workers Rising campaign. Hotel Workers Rising represents an effort to empower thousands of hotel workers employed in cities across North America as they work to improve their jobs and secure better lives for themselves and their families.
Since the autumn of 2004, 8000 San Francisco hotel workers have gone without a contract, resisting the hotel corporations' attempts to chip away at their benefits, and to split them off from their sisters and brothers in other North American cities. Now, in 2006, Local 2 members are beginning the next stage in this campaign -- alongside hotel workers in Toronto, New York, Hawaii, Chicago, Sacramento, Monterey, Los Angeles, Boston, and cities throughout North America.
