Pickett at Grand Union Union Square, San Francisco, July 26, 2012

San Francisco

As shoppers scurried around Union Square
yesterday, a picket that drew more than 300 people
could be heard for blocks. The grand-scale noise-
making was in front of the Grand Hyatt, where
workers and supporters demonstrated against what
they say is unsafe and unfair treatment of hotel

UNITE HERE Local 2 has been supporting a boycott
of a couple Hyatt locations in San Francisco for
years now. But this week the national union, along
with a broad coalition of supporters, has called for a
worldwide boycott of the hotel chain.
