LISA FELDSTEIN TO RALLY WITH SAN FRANCISCO HOSPITALITY WORKERS ON LABOR DAY

Feldstein Stands For Health Benefits and Decent Wage for Workers

San Francisco, Calif., September 6, 2004 – Lisa Feldstein, Supervisorial candidate for District Five and Labor activist, will rally on Labor Day with UNITE HERE Local 2, which represents 12,000 hospitality workers in San Francisco and San Mateo Counties. Feldstein supports Local 2 workers in their negotiations with the Multi-Employer Group, an organization that represents 14 of the largest downtown Class A hotels, and which have so far refused to guarantee the maintenance of employees’ health benefits.

“We are standing on the front lines of the battle for health care, decent wages and simple basic dignity for all, and I can think of no nobler cause,” said Lisa Feldstein. " On Labor Day, I honor Labor by joining my brothers and sisters from UNITE HERE Local 2, who are fighting to defend the livelihoods of their families,” added Feldstein.
