****BREAKING****
WESTIN GASLAMP WORKERS ARE ON STRIKE!


One Job Should Be Enough for all workers to provide for their families
.

Marriott is the largest and richest hotel company in the world. This money was made on the backs of hotel workers who are often struggling to get by.

The hotel workers at the Marriott-brand Westin San Diego Gaslamp Quarter are over it.  On September 17, Westin Gaslamp workers voted 99% to authorize a strike, joining over 8,000 other Marriott hotel workers who have authorized strikes in 6 cities across the US.

On Wednesday, Boston Marriott workers walked out on strike. They have since been joined by workers in San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland, Detroit and Hawaii. Early Sunday morning, San Diego Marriott workers joined their coworkers across the country in this historic fight for justice.

While on strike, workers will not receive a check from the company. Strikers are courageously taking this risk, and as a community we must support them.  The San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council is accepting donations to a strike solidarity fund, which will be 100% distributed by the labor council directly to striking workers and their families.

The money raised here will be used as an emergency fund in the form of grants for strikers facing particular hardships.

For more information on the strike, see this San Diego U-T article.
