Workers organizing and building their own power in the workplace remains one of the most effective ways to win and maintain good jobs and fight back against inequality and corporate greed. Labor-Religion Coalition of NYS is committed to supporting union campaigns for worker justice.
The Hilton in Albany is refusing to negotiate a fair contract with workers, attempting to eliminate pension benefits, slash vacation time, and shrink wage increases. They also are refusing the employees' requests for anti-discrimination policies to protect immigrant and LGBTQ workers.
In response, the Hilton workers - members of the Hotel Trades Council - are on strike and are calling for a boycott of the hotel.
Please also honor the boycott and do not stay, eat or attend events at the Hilton Albany until the workers call off the boycott. Visit boycotthiltonalbany.com to learn more about the workers' struggle and for a list of union alternatives.
