OCAP and other allies are continuing to support the Metropolitan Hotel
Workers Committee with weekly pickets at the Hotel. We are demanding
that Pedro Vanegas, who has been cleared by the WSIB to return to the
Hotel, be called into work as he is entitled to be. At present, he is
being denied any hours in violation of the collective agreement that
his employer ignores and his union refuses to enforce. Working
conditions at the Metropolitan are appalling and we are challenging all
of the abuses that this employer is guilty of.

The last action was very sucessful. Clearly, hotel security is anxious
to stop the pickets and the cops are looking for a pretext to help them
achieve this. We need a strong, militant picket line that they can't
intimidate as part of a campaign for justice at the Metropolitan they
can't silence.

We are in the weeks leading up to the Toronto International Film
Festival when the eyes of the world will be on this City and its plush
hotels will do a roaring trade. Now is the time to hold this sweatshop
employer accountable. Please come out on Friday and stand in solidarity
with these workers.
