Press Con­fer­ence: Skan­ska no re­tal­ia­tion against workers!

Public Square Nashville, 1 Public Sq, Nashville, Tennessee 37201

SURJ Nashville aligns with the workers that build our city!!!
One of downtown's fanciest new hotels, the JW Marriot, was built by workers that have had their wages stolen and now this same hotel along with the contractor Skanska, is suing the workers. Join us to hear directly from the worker's at the city council meeting!

Metro-Nashville city council members, concerned community members and workers are gathering to ask Skanska to do the right thing!!

In May 2018 workers were fired from the JW Marriott and found themselves missing 2 weeks worth of pay.

In December 2018 there was a worker-led delegation to the Skanska offices in Cool Springs to deliver a letter from the Metro-Nashville city council asking them to meet with workers.

Skanska responded a week later by counter suing the workers in retaliation!

On Tuesday, the workers who built the JW Marriott are having a press conference. Please join to hear directly from them and amplify their voices. They will be holding a press conference outside and then attending the Metro Council meeting.
