Braving the Cold, Workers in Montreal Rally to Challenge Corporate Bully
This is not the first time RosDev Group President Michael Rosenberg has come under fire for unfair treatment of workers. In 1993, all 180 hotel workers at a downtown Montreal Holiday Inn were thrown out on Christmas Eve after the bankruptcy of a company controlled by Rosenberg. The hotel, however, remained open but replaced—and locked out for 3 ½ years—all its unionized workers. Similar events occurred on Easter of the same year at another Montreal hotel when Rosenberg again declared bankruptcy and fired all the hotel’s union workers.
