After 3 years the 99% wins at Castlewood Country Club

Published on Feb 26, 2013

Francisca Carranza, Janitor at Castlewood Country Club tells us about the disregard for the workers at an exclusive country club in California.


For three years, we’ve been looking forward to the day we could make this announcement:

Castlewood workers have won their struggle for justice!

On February 13, the workers approved a great new contract that provides job security, affordable family health care, raises, and a substantial signing bonus.

“So many people told us that dishwashers and waitresses couldn’t win against a luxury golf club,” said server Jeanette Cardenas. “But we’ve learned that it doesn’t matter who you are, if you stay strong and you’re on the side of justice.”

Workers and their supporters fought bravely throughout a lockout that lasted longer than the siege of Leningrad. The workers returned to their jobs in October 2012 after a National Labor Relations Board judge found the lockout illegal, but contract negotiations continued through the winter.
