October 19th #ServingUpJustice: Rally and March for Hospitality Workers & Immigrants
On October 19th over 300 hospitality workers from New York City, Queens, Brooklyn, Long Island and New Jersey rallied across from Radio City Music Hall to stand in solidarity with the 9,500 Local 100 members whose contracts expire in 2018, other locals mobilizing in 40 cities across North America & our immigrant brothers and sisters nationwide. The rally called attention to the importance of these contracts to our members, their families and all workers, unionized or not. This national day of action was held in coalition with the New York Immigration Coalition and African Communities Together and was joined by several governmental bodies and officials.
After the conclusion of the rally, Local 100 members and allies marched up 6th Avenue to Trump International Hotel, chanting and singing along the way. Upon arrival at Trump International, marchers chanted “shame” and pointed at the hotel to make their message clear. Local 100 would like to thank everyone who joined it’s members and marched in solidarity with Immigrants everywhere.
