Anniversary of Congress Hotel Strike

In our continuing support of the workers at Chicago’s Congress Plaza Hotel and their fight for a fair and just contract, the Jewish Council on Urban Affairs will join the members of Unite Here Local 1 and Rep. Luis Gutierrez at a rally outside of the Congress Hotel on Monday, June 14 (4 p.m. – 6 p.m.).

JCUA believes that worker’s rights are human rights and we will not stop supporting the Congress Hotel workers until they are treated with respect and dignity.  JCUA and Unite Here Local 1 would greatly appreciate your support, your voice and your presence on Monday!

We will gather at the JCUA office in Chicago (610 S. Michigan, 5th Floor) at 3:30 p.m. and walk over to the Congress Hotel (1 block north) as a group to join the event. If you have any questions or would like to RSVP please contact Tom Walsh at 312.663.0960, or
