The group is also planning to stage a "mock counter protest" by the country club they label as the 1%.
The group intends to make this a peaceful protest; its website notes that "the goal is to end the lockout and get the workers back to work, so all actions should keep strategy, discipline, and accountability in mind when considering tactics."
A protest in June led to the arrest of about 20 people for blocking Castlewood Drive in what organizers described as an act of civil disobedience. That protest drew close to 100 demonstrators and nearly 50 police officers from the Alameda County Sheriff's Office and Pleasanton.
About 60 employees of the club -- bartenders, kitchen helpers, waiters and other hourly full-time and part-time employees -- were locked out of the country club on Feb. 25, 2010, in a dispute over health care costs.
The sides on the lockout remain in the same stalemate they've been in for months. Originally, management offered a contract that would have to shift workers from a union-sponsored health plan to one controlled by Castlewood. Monthly fees would jump from zero to $366.93 a month for single policies and to $739.08 for families.
After months of talks, management offered to bring the workers back -- as long as the club managers could fire or lay people off without taking seniority into consideration.
A National Labor Relations Board hearing that could potentially resolve the case began in January and is expected to continue into March.
