MARCH FOR JUSTICE FOR WOODFIN WORKERS!

Ten days before Christmas, the Woodfin Suites Hotel in Emeryville fired 21 workers who stood up for their rights under Measure C, a local living wage ordinance. Workers are back on the job under a temporary court order, but the Woodfin is still seeking to fire them, and has failed to pay more than $200,000 in back wages owed to housekeepers. Come march through Emeryville- and show the Woodfin that our community will stand with the workers until justice is won.
