On Friday, Dec 15th, Woodfin Suites hotel fired approximately 20 workers in apparent retaliation for organizing for the enforcement of Measure C, Emeryville’s living wage law for the hospitality industry. In response we are organizing a series of emergency actions:

Saturday, December 16, 7am Wake Up for Justice!
We rallied and picketed at the hotel at 7am.

Monday, December 18, 5:30 pm: MASS RALLY TO WIN BACK WORKERS' JOBS!
On Monday, we will have our planned action, but due to the mass firings, it is more important than ever that you come. We will announce a boycott of all Woodfin Suites hotels to send a strong message to the Woodfin that the community will not stand for retaliation against workers. Please come to the action, bring your friends and family, and bring donations to help support the workers through the winter holidays. We are asking of donations of canned food and toys for children, as well as monetary donations for a hardship fund to help support the workers and their families.

Both emergency actions will take place at the Woodfin Suites Hotel at: 5800 Shellmound St., Emeryville, California 94608.

Additionally, we are asking people to call Woodfin CEO Sam Hardage at 858-794-2338 x 700 to tell him that you will not stand for retaliation against workers!

Thank you for all of your support of workers at the Woodfin and we hope to see you soon!
