Support hotel worker picket on Saturday!
Workers at the Edgewater have been in contract negotiations for over 6 months. The hotel has lashed out at workers as they exercise their union rights and have hired private security guards who are stationed throughout the hotel. Since 2010, wages at the hotel have not kept up with the cost of living in Seattle, even as Edgewater revenues have grown by over 70%. The workers have voted 93% to authorize a strike.
