UNITE HERE Solidarity Rally -- Sat. 11/20

UNITE HERE Solidarity Rally

Join members of UNITE HERE, the San Francisco Central Labor
Council, the dockworkers union, Rigoberta Menchu, AAAUnite, and fellow
activists and anthropologists in a rally in support of the
locked out workers.

Saturday, November 20th
Gather in front of the Hilton at 10:30 AM. We will march to
the rally as a group at 10:45 AM. The rally is scheduled to
begin at 11:00 AM.

4,000 UNITE HERE workers have been locked out of their jobs
since October 13th. In addition to lost wages, they're now
facing the loss of healthcare coverage.

The union has asked a joint hotel-union trust fund to
withdraw money to provide coverage for workers in December
and January. Four management trustees voted no on Monday,
sending the matter to arbitration.

Management's vote to end health care benefits "is
unconscionable, indefensible, and it will not stand,'' said
Mike Casey, president of Local 2, the union that represents
the locked-out workers.

Join us in telling the San Francisco Multi-Employer Group of
hotels that their every action to date has
been "unconscionable, indefensible," and WE will no longer
stand for the lock out.
