Workers continue to strike and picket across Los Angeles. Can you show up for them?
Support L.A. Grand Workers Friday
March and Rally in Santa Monica Saturday
Adopt a Picket LAX/Century Blvd or Universal City
Once again, hundreds of cooks, room attendants, dishwashers, servers, bellmen, and front desk agents walked off the job in a fourth wave of strikes. Belen, a 6-year veteran housekeeper in downtown LA recently shared, “The last raise we got was 45 cents. After deductions, it added just $14.40 to our paychecks. It’s just not enough. No more cents for us. We need dollars.”
HELP BUY LUNCH FOR WORKERS AT THE L.A. GRAND
Yesterday, workers walked off the job at the L.A. Grand Hotel to protest unfair labor practices by the hotel. They remain on strike through tomorrow and we’d like you to support them by showing up on the picket line OR helping buy them lunch on Friday. (You make the donation. We’ll make the order.)
TAKE TO THE STREETS IN SANTA MONICA ON SATURDAY, 8/5/23 at 10:30 a.m.
Join clergy and community members as they walk with workers on Saturday, August 5th. We’ll meet at the Viceroy (on Ocean and Pico) just before 10:30 a.m. We’ll march to the Fairmont (Ocean and Wilshire) and have a rally there.

Westside Voice brings the neighborhoods and cities of West Los Angeles together. By providing clarity and relevance to issues that affect us all we can create a more cohesive, interdependent sub-region of Greater Los Angeles. A development decision in Beverly Hills can very much affect traffic to and from Santa Monica. A crime spree that started in West Hollywood may very well stretch into Palms/Mar Vista. A street widening project in Inglewood may very well affect game day traffic coming from Venice. We will connect these dots and share both our own and guest’s opinions on topics affecting us as Westsiders, Californians, and Americans.
