San Francisco, CA– The city’s Argent Hotel has expressed its willingness to support a short-term contract expiring in 2006. The Argent now joins the Palace and the Westin St. Francis in demonstrating interest in signing a contract ending in 2006. UNITE HERE Local 2 has lifted the boycott of the Westin St. Francis. However, the boycott remains for the 13 other properties (including the Argent and the Palace) in the hotel employer group that negotiates the labor contract. The boycott of the hotels in San Francisco has seriously affected the city’s tourism and hospitality business. Workers and allies are still committed to informing the public of the boycott and their struggle for a decent contract. Click here for more information.
