Other implications and impacts of the pending applications will also be discussed by the membership.

Melanie Luthern, Unite/HERE Local 11, will update the group on current negotiations, work yet to be done, and how residents can support living wage agreements.

Kevin McKeown is one of the corrupt councilors who is part of this mess! Look at how much money he received as "campaign contributions" from big development companies. All of our "pretend progressive" councilors are in bed with the money. Just a chance to blow some smoke up our rears in favor of making Santa Monica the high rise capital of the west.

Dear Really, This meeting isn't about stopping the developments- it's about how to stay involved in the development on behalf of the people who are already in a professional union in order to increase their wages. The hotel workers want more hotels than have been proposed for development. So, it's not just the city council, it's this union, too. And really, the city is just pushing back against all sorts of unions. Our fire department is suing the city- did you know that? Everyone just wants to use the city for money, that's what an incorporated area is by it's very nature.

...Says John Doe aka Mr. Developer. You can never stop the developers. We want Santa Monica to look like Mumbai by 2015.
