On Monday, strikers from The Palace Hotel at Local 2 visited the Local 19 picket lines in San Jose. When we fight together, we win together!
Tuesday was a great day for strikers from San Diego, Detroit, Oakland, Boston, Hawaii and San Francisco who are visiting Washington D.C. We learned that more groups moved their events. Over the past two days the team did 56 visits.
Check out this video featuring Local 2850’s strikers in Oakland.
“We’re going to keep it going one day longer than the company!”

Local 19 flipped the script at TwitchCon. Strikers in San Jose stayed disciplined and strong. Some conference goers refused to cross the line.

A member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, Hillary Ronen, asked the CEO of Marriott to come to a meeting about the strikes. Read the letter here.
In this video, a leader from the New Trade Union Initiative in India expresses support for our strike. He’s saying a multinational corporation like Marriott who makes money from our work must negotiate with the union wherever it operates. The fight in our cities is not just about money, but also racial discrimination, sexual harassment and women’s rights in general – in all of those fights, the workers of the world are with us.
One Day Longer? One Day Stronger!
