Park Hyatt Toronto workers join Local 75
January 23, 2012
On Wednesday, January 18, the Ontario Labour Relations Board supervised a vote at the Park Hyatt Toronto, and the workers voted 104 to 17 to join UNITE HERE. This bargaining unit includes approximately 140 workers. The committee and the members stayed very strong throughout the campaign, which included an aggressive and very public campaign against UNITE HERE Local 75, including daily department meetings, letters couriered to members' homes, constant one-on-one campaigning in all departments, and a big-screen TV in the staff cafeteria broadcasting anti-Local 75 messages 24/7. UNITE HERE has filed an unfair labour practice complaint that includes numerous allegations of unlawful conduct by the company.
