SEATTLE (March 12, 2015) — Space Needle workers have gone more than 1,000 days without a raise. But despite a hostile, anti-union climate inside the Space Needle, workers have actively continued to organize for long-delayed raises. The owners of the Space Needle — who come from one of Seattle’s wealthiest families — have responded to workers’ call for raises with a condescending webinar instructing them on how to “live on less.”
All union members and community supporters are encouraged to show solidarity with Space Needle workers and UNITE HERE Local 8 as they continue to stand up for the Seattle values of fairness and prosperity for all. Make plans to attend the Space Needle workers’ “1,000 Days Without a Raise” rally on Wednesday, March 18 at 9:30 a.m. at the Space Needle (at Seattle Center, near the Space Needle ticket booth).
