SF Hotel Picketline Support Needed
by All Day, All Night
Tuesday Oct 16th, 2018 7:56 AM
The way we will end the Trump/Pence Regime, defeat the war machine, end homelessness, achieve free medical care for all, raise the education level, and much more is by supporting labor.
You are needed NOW to walk the hotel picket lines in San Francisco, even for just 15 minutes. The hotels provide no room service, very little cleanliness, very little conference room amenities, yet apparently educated people are crossing the picket lines. They need to be told PICKETLINES MEAN DON'T CROSS!

You can bring your pots and metal utensils to bang together, your whistles to blow, your drums to thump, your trumpets to toot, your tambourines and bells to jingle jangle, and most importantly if you have them, YOUR LABOR UNION AND ORGANIZATION BANNERS to show solidarity and to teach these hotel patrons that PICKETLINES MEAN DON'T CROSS!

Only 9 hotels in San Francisco are being struck so there are hundreds more available for hotel patrons to use. The picket lines are ALL DAY, ALL NIGHT, 24/7. Marriott is clearly trying to bust the union and has hired a few scabs to escort the hotel patrons to and from the hotel. Marriott is big enough to allow this strike to go on for months, if not years. The desperately poor hotel workers need our help now to win, and we need a labor movement to improve life in this backward country that still does not have socialized medicine, unlike the rest of the industrialized world. ONLY A STRONG LABOR MOVEMENT CAN GUARANTEE ANY IMPROVEMENTS IN THIS SOCIETY.

The struck hotels are:
Courtyard Marriott (299 2d Street, near baseball stadium)
Palace Hotel by Marriott (Market and New Montgomery)
San Francisco Marriott Marquis (4th and Mission Streets)
San Francisco Marriott Union Square (Sutter at Powell)
St. Regis Hotel (125 Third Street)
W San Francisco by Marriott (181 Third Street)
Westin St Francis at Union Square (Powell and Geary)
Hyatt Fisherman's Wharf (555 North Point)
Le Meridien (333 Battery)
