Please Support our Union brothers and sisters in St. Paul on Feb. 16th!

14 Feb

UNITE HERE Local 17 has been in contract negotiations with The Saint Paul Hotel since November 2011. The Hotel has hired a Union busting attorney, John Hauge, and is proposing to take away daily overtime, have workers contribute to their Health Insurance, and impose a 2 tiered wage system, reducing wages by as much as $5.00 per hour, undercutting ALL other Hotel contracts in the Twin Cities Area and lowering the standards of the Hospitality Industry. This is the same Hotel that once wanted to “pay the highest wages and attract the best workers”. The Saint Paul Hotel is a 4 Diamond property and was recently named as the best Hotel in Minnesota. We think they should be able to meet or exceed what all the other Employers agreed to.

Please call or email the management and tell them to “stop disrespecting the workers and hurting the community by turning living wage jobs into low wage jobs”.
