MOBILIZATION ON SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 20TH
IN SUPPORT OF THE LOCAL 2 HOTEL WORKERS!
Dear Sisters and Brothers:
PLEASE JOIN The Million Worker March Committee, the San Francisco Labor
Council, HERE-UNITE Local 2, and the Executive Board of ILWU Local 10 in a
solidarity mobilization with the locked-out hotel workers.
The short solidarity rally will start at 11 a.m. sharp at Union Square in
San Francisco (Powell @ Geary). It will feature presentations by the
locked-out workers and rally sponsors. Following the speakers, there will
be a march to some of the main hotels that have locked out their workers,
with mass picketing and chants at each site.
The Local 2 workers need our visible solidarity -- urgently. They need the
largest possible show of support to send a clear signal to the hotel
owners' association that San Francisco is -- and will remain -- a strong
A PDF version of an attractive Nov. 20 mobilization leaflet is available
upon request at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, thanks to a kind donation
from Inkworks Press, we have one-thousand two-sided color postcards urging
participation in the Nov. 20 rally and letting people know how they can
help the Local 2 workers.
We need volunteers to distribute the Nov. 20 leaflets and postcards at the
various rallies and events tomorrow (Friday the 19th) -- including the
rallies throughout the Bay Area in support of the UFCW grocery workers. If
you want to help distribute the postcards, please pick up a stack at
Inkworks in Berkeley (510-845-7111, ask for Charlie Hinton) or at ILWU
Local 10 in San Francisco (415-776-8100). Please call beforehand to make
sure that postcards are still available.
Thanks, in advance, for your support in building this mobilization for the
locked-out hotel workers. Their fight is our fight. As the motto of the
International Longshore and Warehouse Workers proclaims: "An Injury to One
Is An Injury to All."
