Hotel-workers-rising

The AFL-CIO added three Hyatt Hotels in Chicago and two in California to its national boycott list at the request of UNITE HERE.  This brings the total number to 31. See the complete list.

Added in Chicago are the Hyatt Regency O'Hare (officially in the city of Rosemont, IL), the Park Hyatt Chicago and the Hyatt Regency Chicago. In Long Beach, California, the Embassy Suites in Irvine, CA goes on the list along with the Long Beach Hyatt Regency.

While the union's battle with Hyatt has gained the most notoriety, UNITE HERE's Hotel Workers Rising Campaign spotlights dozens of individual hotels and large chains using the down economy as an excuse to slash wages, benefits and working conditions for hospitality industry workers.

Help if you don’t know your union

Your union membership dictates which Union Plus benefits you are eligible to use.

  1. What your national union’s name (not just your local number)? Scroll through the list we have to see if you recognize your union.
  2. What type of work do you do (select your occupation)?
  3. Do you have a union member card or union publication/letter that shows the name of your union? Find something with the name of your union, not just a local number.
  4. Is there a shop steward or work colleague you can ask what the name of your union is? You can even ask your human resources department to tell you the full name of your union?
  5. Do you have a Union Plus Credit Card? If so, the name and logo for your international union should appear on the front of the card.

Union Plus Credit Card

Union members are automatically eligible for their union's Union Plus benefits and you do not need to be a Union Plus Credit Cardholder in order to access your union's Union Plus benefits.

But - if you are a Union Plus Credit Cardholder, you could be eligible for additional discounts.
