San Francisco Hotel Workers Strike Over Health Benefits
On Thursday, about 300 employees of San Francisco's Grand Hyatt hotel represented by Unite Here Local 2 launched a three-day strike. The central issue in negotiations between the hotel and the union is the rising cost of health benefits and how to split those costs between the hotels and the employees. Union President Mike Casey said that employees of other hotels in the city would begin striking unless negotiators reach a deal on the health benefits.
