Baltimore City Council to Consider Resolution on Hyatt Regency Baltimore!
The Baltimore City Council is considering a resolution urging the Hyatt to uphold its agreement with the City to directly hire all workers at the hotel and to enter into a Labor Peace agreement, similar to the one signed by the Hilton Baltimore, to protect the City’s interests as the owner of the hotel.
The Hyatt is owned by the City of Baltimore and is supposed to regularly pay money to the City. When the hotel was built, the City included in its management agreement that Hyatt must directly hire all employees. Hyatt is violating that lease and breaking its promise to Baltimore by insisting that more and more of our brothers and sisters work for subcontractors for lower wages and with no access to Hyatt benefits. When Hyatt spends money fighting union organizing, that is money which should instead be going to the City.
Come Make Your Voice Heard!

Healthcare is a Human Right - Maryland Healthy Lives. Healthy Community. Join Healthcare Now-Maryland and members of our campaign on March 4th 7-9 pm at the Diocesan Center in Baltimore (N. Charles & University Parkway) for a presentation by Dr. Walter Tsou, past president of the American Public Health Association and former Health Commissioner of Philadelphia, on the pressing need to improve our healthcare system beyond the Affordable Care Act. Specifically, Dr. Tsou will be sharing the crucial moral and economic reasons why we must work towards universal healthcare in Maryland and throughout our country.
This event will provide an opportunity to educate ourselves further in preparation for the Community Dialogues we are beginning to organize across the state. Beginning in April, counties around Maryland will be organizing large public forums where Marylanders from diverse communities will share their health care stories, realize they are not alone, and join the growing grassroots movement to ensure this healthcare crisis does not continue!
We hope y'all can join leaders from throughout the state on March 4th to learn details of why we must fight for our human right to health care, and why we cannot afford to settle for current "reform" that exacerbates inequality and emphasizes profit over people.
When: Monday, March 4th . 7-9 pm Doors Open & Snacks Start at 6:30
Where: 4 E. University Parkway, Baltimore, MD 21218 (Intersection of Charles St. & University Parkway)

CISPA is back.
Remember when we defeated the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) last year? Well, it's back with a vengeance. The leading Republican and Democrat on the U.S. House Intelligence subcommittee re-introduced the cybersnooping bill this week. We beat it once. We can beat it again. Click here to tell your lawmakers to support privacy and oppose CISPA. To refresh your memory, Demand Progress co-founder Aaron Swartz called CISPA 1.0 a Patriot Act for the Internet. But now they've rebooted the effort, and Rolling Stone says that with CISPA 2.0, "Congress is trying to kill Internet privacy again." The bill gives companies like Verizon and AT&T protection from customers' lawsuits when they give the Feds information about your Internet use. Amazingly, Congress and big businesses are claiming they need to violate our privacy to protect us from Iranian and Chinese hackers, but they refuse to put any basic privacy protections in writing. CISPA would undermine our basic rights and jeopardize our privacy online. Click here to tell your lawmakers to oppose to it. CISPA sponsor Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger even said at a hearing this week that he didn't see any reason why businesses needed to hide your personal data from the government. Already over 200,000 Demand Progress members have contacted Congress to oppose this bill, but we need your help again. Help us defend Internet privacy from the latest assault by Congress and big business.
