Ottawa — 11 December 2011.

On the morning of December 11th, 2011, supporters of the Novotel Ottawa workers, who are trying to form a union, gathered for coffee in solidarity. They OCCUPIED the main restaurant and management had no choice but to shut down the restaurant and give the coffee for free. Supporters then gathered in the front of the hotel and marched and chanted “Solidarity Forever.”

A majority of Novotel workers are now demanding that their union be recognized. The workers are delighted to see that the Ottawa Community stands in support of workers rights!
