The ILWU has asked for the help of the members of UHPA as they picket the Pacific Beach Hotel each day of Golden Week.
Pacific Beach Hotel workers voted to unionize almost 3 years ago and still don’t have a first contract after more than two years of continuous bargaining. When the owners of the hotel changed the company that managed the facilities, they required all employees, some with over 20 years of service, to reapply for their jobs. Members of the negotiating team and other union leaders were not “rehired.” Learn more at the website: http://pacbeachworkers.ilwulocal142.org/
Unions from around the state have signed up to picket and demonstrate their solidarity with these workers. UHPA is calling on our members to also participate.
