WORKERS, NOT POLITICIANS, WILL END THIS WAR

WORKERS, NOT POLITICIANS, WILL END THIS WAR

Build Our Solidarity, Not Their Elections

-Antithesis, NYC NEFAC Collective

Before bombs began dropping on Iraq, millions of us protested against the war. Today, the war is dismally unpopular and every day we learn of new atrocities being committed in our names. And all at the expense of the lives of U.S. soldiers, drawn heavily from the working class. Faced with this dire situation, leaders of the antiwar movement have focused on electing Democrats, lobbying Democrats, and calling on Democrats to impeach Bush. We reject this whole electoral strategy. It has not brought us any closer to stopping the war. Of the leading Democratic candidates for President, all plan on keeping U.S. troops in Iraq indefinitely. It is clear to us that a new type of movement and strategy is needed, both to end the unjust wars in Iraq and beyond, and to work towards the liberation of all of us here in the U.S.A.

Boycott of Baltimore City Center Sheraton Hotel Launched by UNITEHERE

Baltimore City Center Sheraton Hotel workers call for a boycott of their own hotel. Rally and picket line on Thursday, November 15, 2007 at 3:30PM.

Hopkins Plaza, West Baltimore Street between Liberty and Charles behind the Sheraton Baltimore City Center Hotel
101 W. Fayette Street

In 2005, the Omni Hotel in Baltimore was bought up by Bill Yung the III's expanding Columbia Sussex empire of 67 hotels and 14 casinos. Rebranding it the City Center Sheraton, Yung had the hotel refurbished but there was one detail about the hotel he couldn't change. What Yung did not bargain for and now who he refuses to bargain with are the unionized hotel workers of UNITE HERE Local 7 and the International Union of Operating Engineers(IOUE). When Columbia Sussex bought the hotel, they recognized the union's Collective Bargaining Agreement, but the company has since tried to reject the workers demands. With the company's unwillingness to negotiate with the union and attacks upon working conditions, the workers of Sheraton Baltimore City Center Hotel have voted for a boycott of their own hotel, beginning on November 15th, 2007.
