Over 900 Plaza Hotel workers now have global allies in a fight to save their jobs from plans to raze the hotel and replace it with condominiums and retail stores. Last week, UNITE HERE Local 6 leaders met with the British union, Transport and General Workers Union (T&G), to solicit their help in reaching out to Harrod’s Department stores, the retail giant rumored to be setting up shop on the Plaza Hotel property. Following a T&G facilitated meeting with Harrod’s President Muhammad El Fayed, the company president sent a letter to Mayor Michael Bloomberg to publicly state that Harrod’s had no intention of building stores on the Plaza property, and to denounce plans to destroy the landmark. A coalition of New York City politicians, preservationists and supporting groups have also mobilized efforts to Save the Plaza, and have engaged in a multi-faceted campaign to educate the public about this issue. For more information about campaign events, or to learn how you can help Save the Plaza, contact Jim Donovan at (212) 957-8000.
