35th Anniversary of SF Hotel Strike “Wake-Up Time”
Join Unite Here! Local 2 union veterans and labor supporters to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the San Francisco hotel workers strike and honor its veterans. This was the most important hotel strike in the post war period and came with an upsurge of rank and file activism.
Pots and pans were used by housekeepers in front of Hyatt Regency and other hotels to let the bosses know that hotel workers were not taking it anymore and wanted better conditions and benefits.
This commemoration will include stories from the strikers and a video by videographer Mary Ellen Churchill.
