Now without a labor contract for 2 years and without health insurance for 16 months, a dozen Latino hotel workers in Monterey, California, are locked in a battle with their employer, Kilsoo Seo, who wants to trap them in low-wage, no-benefit jobs.
Seo, an out-of-town owner from Bethel, Alaska, eliminated his workers’ health insurance and pension plans entirely in October 2004. Seo’s actions left his workers to try to get by on the expensive Monterey Peninsula on only $8.84 per hour and left the workers’ 19 children without health insurance.
UNITE HERE has called for a boycott of the Monterey Bay Travelodge to aid the workers’ struggle for a fair contract and the reinstatement of their health insurance plan.
Please support the boycott by sending an email to Kilsoo Seo telling him you will not stay at his Monterey Bay Travelodge until the labor issues are settled.
