80 Oakland Airport food and retail workers will walk off the job tomorrow morning to protest unfair labor practices by their employer Host International.
We’ve been in negotiations with Host for a year, and the company’s most recent proposals would gut our contract–drastically reducing vacation and sick days; eliminating pensions, paid meal breaks, and even overtime pay on shifts longer than eight hours; cutting pay for new hires and freezing longtime workers’ wages for five years; and removing workers from the union’s affordable health insurance plan.
Come down and join workers from Starbucks, Chili’s, California Pizza Kitchen, and other shops on the picket lines. We will be on strike all day, with rallies at 7am, noon, and 5pm at Terminal 2!
We will be shuttling people from the parking lot of the ILWU Local 6 office at 99 Hegenberger Road before the 7am and 5pm rallies. If you want a ride to the airport, please meet us there by 6:45am or 4:45pm.
