#Fast4OurJobs Hotel Workers Rally in MAPLE RIDGE Thursday, August 27th!
WHEN: Thursday, Aug. 27 at 12 pm noon
WHERE: Minister Lisa Beare’s Office at 20130 Lougheed Hwy, Maple Ridge, BC V2X 2P7
We started fasting on Aug. 10th and we won’t stop until we have our jobs back!
After 2 weeks in Victoria fasting on the BC Legislature lawn, laid-off hotel workers are bringing the fight to the steps of the tourism minister’s office! We’re moving the hunger strike to Maple Ridge.
Join fasters for a rally outside Minister ‘s office as we urge her and the government to save 50,000 hotel jobs.
The tourism industry wants the government to give them $680 million while they terminate long term staff. Nearly 1000 people have signed the petition urging Tourism Minister Lisa Beare to protect hotel workers. We need Beare and the BC government to give hotel workers a legal right to return to our jobs when it is time to go back.
Let us know you’re coming to the rally on Facebook here.
