And the union protests the
loss of dues labor policies
Labor unions for hotel workers make no sense. Is there an apprentice program for maids?
“During negotiations, a group of employees decided they didn’t want to be represented by the union and they circulated a petition that was signed by the majority of our employees,” Levenfeld explained.
“Based on the petition, we notified the union that the employees withdrew their recognition of the union. The union wasn’t pleased and made a series of accusations against us that we believe are false.”
Levenfeld said the inn has replaced the union’s health care plan for its employees with one that is fully paid by the employer and replaced the union’s retirement plan with a 401k option.
