Local 2 members walkout at Hyatt Regency, San Francisco

NYHTC - June 21, 2010 Share/Save/Bookmark

As reported in the San Francisco Bay Guardian, about 400 Hyatt Regency workers represented by Unite Here Local 2 staged a three-day strike last week to pressure Hyatt hotels to negotiate a fair contract, stop unilaterally increasing workloads, and lower health care costs.

For almost a year, the local has been negotiating a contract with Hyatt, who is using the excuse of a faltering economy to justify unacceptable proposals at the negotiating table, despite union reports indicating that the hotel industry - and Hyatt specifically - remains profitable.
