SF City Wide Solidarity Rally For Striking & Locked Out Hotel Workers
Tuesday, October 12, 2004 4:15PM
Union Square / Geary & Powell St.
Join Local 2 hotel workers at Union Square on Tuesday, October 12, for a
city wide Solidarity Rally. Local 2 members struck four hotels for a
limited two-week action and the hotels responded by locking out workers
out of ten other hotels. Now the hotels are threatening to lockout Local
2 workers beyond the two weeks in order to force a sustandard contract
down their throats.
We're asking all workers to join us this Tuesday to tell the hotel
coporations that this is not only an outrage to Local 2 members, but to
all workers in San Francisco.
Bring your co-workers, friends, and family - let's stand up and support
our Local 2 brothers and sisters.
If you have any questioins and for information on further lockout
activities call me at (415)4440-4809. In the meantime join Local 2
picket lines at the San Francisco Hilton, Crowne Plaza, Argent and Mark
Hopkins Hotes where they are on strike until Wednesday, and the
Fairmont, Four Seasons, Grand Hyatt, Holiday Inn Civic Center, Holiday
Inn Express, Holiday Inn Fisherman's Wharf, Hyatt Regency, Omni, and
Palace hotels where they are locked out.
