If you have time and transport this morning, come out to protest the unfair firing of Vancouver Hilton hotel worker, apparently in retaliation for speaking out about conditions there. Workers belonging to UNITE-HERE have been conducting a campaign for months to bring the Vancouver Hilton up to regional standards. The protest starts at 11:30 a.m., called by UNITE-HERE & is backed by Portland Jobs... with Justice.

Description from a UNITE-HERE organizer: "After our amazing and inspirational action [Tuesday}, Luke Fielder, the PBX Operator who spoke to us of the injustice at the hotel, has been fired today [Wednesday].
Human Resources Director Irene Chrest, fired Luke after demanding private information regarding a medical condition that causes him to fall asleep. Combined with having to work two jobs, this medical issue is a serious issue for him.
Management's cruel, heartless firing of Luke is one more example of the lack of respect this employer has for their workers.
Will you join us tomorrow at 11:30 at the hotel to demand Irene Chrest to immediately reinstate Luke? We hope you can be there."
