Local 1 Celebrates Victories at the Waldorf-Astoria and Palomar Hotels
November 1, 2012
Welcome to the workers at two of Chicago's top-rated hotels, who have become members of UNITE HERE Local 1! At the Waldorf-Astoria and the Palomar Hotel, nearly 300 workers have joined our Union, adding to our growing strength in Chicago. At the Palomar Hotel, workers in the restaurant stood strong in the face of an aggressive anti-union campaign by the company, which told them the restaurant would close if they joined the union. Both victories were won due to the hard work of Local 1 organizers and committee through a card check agreement.
