Boston MA (7 Oct 2018) Hotel workers were on strike and on the picket lines in front of Boston’s Ritz-Carleton Hotel on Sunday afternoon when members of the Canadian hockey team crossed the picket line on at the Avery Street hotel. With visible picket signs and bullhorns leading chants such as: “Don’t Check in, check out!” the members of the team carrying their bags and hockey sticks clearly knew they were crossing a striking workers picket line. Hotel security agents escorted the players inside the struck hotel as workers called out “Scab!” The team is part of the NHL and they are also union members. Picket lines mean – Don’t Cross! Anyone in a labor union or is a union supporter who sees a picket line at a place of work should refuse to cross the line and avoid going into the struck business. Labor unions must build picket lines that no one dares to cross.
