> Victory! - IWW Helps Landmark Cinemas Corporation Discover Cash
Workers at Shattuck Cinemas in Berkeley and all Landmark Cinema
employees nation wide are about to receive a pay increase. At
Shattuck Cinemas in Berkeley the starting wage goes up to $8 per
hour from $7.25. That's if the workers choose to accept it.
Landmark attorney Tom Pavone sent a letter announcing the pay raises to
the IWW along with spreadsheet data showing the increase for each worker.
The IWW-Shattuck union considers this to be a clear demonstration
of union power and will continue to press the company for gains in
benefits and improvments in working conditions. The IWW in the Bay
Area along with union workers at Kendall Square cinema in
Cambridge Mass., are the first two Landmark Cinemas to go union.
There are approximately 60 Landmark theaters in total.

IWW-Shattuck union will hold a rally in front of the Shattuck Cinema
on September 1st at 6:30 pm.

> Wobbly Cat! IWW General Assembly is coming up. After two
days of debating and a rally at the Shattuck Cinema, you can get a
little bay area sun and exercise at the WobblyCat! This is going to be a
great IWW themed bike race for local bike messengers and Wobblies
coming from around the country.

The way it works is like this. We will all be meeting at a designated
spot in San Francisco, where you will get a manifest listing all the
stops you need to make around the city. (Out of towners won't have to
make as many stops as locals, don't worry). We'll be visiting places
like Dashiell Hammett's house (the Pinkertons tried to pay him $5000
to kill Frank Little, but he refused). We are also going to be having a
hobo encampment with real hobos, and we are going to make you visit
them and get a hobo mark. There are going to be tons of prizes for
winners, and an awesome afterparty.

If you ride bikes and need us to get you one for the race, please
communicate with the bay area branch. Also, the great thing about the
race is that you can either compete and try to finish really fast, or you
can just take your time and visit some awesome Wobbly history sites
around San Francisco.

And if you don't ride a bike, we still need people to hang out at the
various stops around the city and sign peoples' manifests. Let us know
if you are a hobo and want to hang out with the hobos, for example.

email slava@iww.org if you have any questions, comments, concerns
or need a bike.
