About the Event
Service Industry Workers of the Ann Arbor Area (SIWA3) is hosting a march demanding safety for service workers on Saturday, October 24th in Ann Arbor. In particular, we are making the following demands:
1. Better COVID health and safety protocols. 2. Workplaces that are free from discrimination and harassment. 3. The right for workers to refuse service when we don't feel safe. 4. That owners and management do not steal wages or labor from workers.
Workers in our industry have lacked necessary protections for far too long. The COVID-19 pandemic has only highlighted just how vulnerable we are when faced with greedy owners and customers who lack concern for the health and safety of workers. Now is the time to take a stand and demand what is rightfully ours! We deserve to feel safe in our workplaces!
Join us at 5:00pm on 10/24 in the Diag at U of M. We will begin the event with speakers on the steps of the library, then we will march through the closed streets downtown where diners will be enjoying their evening meals and drinks during the return of Big Ten Football!
Please make sure to wear a mask and practice social distancing!
A big thank you to the following co-sponsors for this event: Ypsilanti IWW Huron Valley DSA
****We are looking for speakers for this event. We would like to have workers who are willing to share their experiences with the pitfalls of working in the service industry. If you're interested in speaking, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
