“You Made a Deal With Your Canadian Hotel Workers, Make a Deal With Us!”
WHAT: Protest at Trump rally with Trump hotel workers seeking union contract
WHEN and WHERE: Friday, March 11, 2016: 3:30pm
WHERE: Chicago, IL – UIC Pavilion, 525 S Racine Ave
WHO: Trump Las Vegas hotel employees, who are members of the Trump Hotel Negotiating Committee, joined by members of UNITE HERE Local 1 in Chicago, the union of hospitality workers.
WHY: In December 2015, hundreds of Trump Hotel employees in Las Vegas voted to form a union. Since that time, Trump’s company has refused to honor the results of that election and negotiate a first contract with its employees.
Now, Trump Las Vegas employees are calling on the world-famous negotiator to make a deal. Last year, Trump’s company negotiated a first contract with hotel workers in Toronto after workers there won a union election. Las Vegas workers say to “Make America Great Again,” Trump should start by negotiating with them a fair deal, like his company made with its Canadian workers.
In the hopes of catching his ear, Trump Las Vegas workers are following him on the campaign trail in Chicago and across the U. S. with an appeal to negotiate.
