MONTREAL—Michel Dugré announced his campaign as the Communist League candidate in the Montreal electoral constituency of Laurier-Dorion in the Sept. 4 Quebec provincial election by joining striking Hyatt Regency hotel workers here Aug. 1. In photo Dugré is talking with striker Anthony Gentile, 19, who has worked at the hotel for about a year. The 300 workers responded to a July 25 lockout by the Hyatt Regency bosses, who are demanding severe concessions in working conditions, with an overwhelming strike vote. Currently 5,500 other hotel workers at 35 hotels in Quebec are in negotiations for a new contract.
