Urgent. Act Now. Please Forward. On Monday, 14 Feb., the OAH will be making its decision over whether or not to honor the UNITE HERE Local 2 boycott of the San Francisco Hilton. They have not yet committed to moving the meeting to an alternate location in nearby San Jose. They have told us they will make their decision based on the amount of pressure they feel to move it. Even if you are not currently a member of the OAH, call the OAH President James Horton (202-994-7489), OAH President-Elect Vicki Ruiz (949-224-9313) and the OAH Executive Director Lee Formwalt (812-855-7311) right now and tell them they should move the meeting. Points to make: - We already have a union preference for choice of hotels and this carries an implied commitment to the cause of labor. - We have done this once before in the case of the Adam’s Mark Hotel in St. Louis in the year 2000. We moved the meeting to put pressure on the hotel to settle an NAACP lawsuit for discrimination. - The more business that comes to these hotels during the boycott, the less incentive employers like Hilton have to settle with their workers. - The hotel has dealt unfairly with their union, including locking them out for 5 weeks, attempting to increase the co-pay on their insurance by 1000%, and stonewalling any efforts at constructive dialogue. - The situation is very unstable. If the situation in San Francisco continues to deteriorate, the OAH meeting may be disrupted. - Moving the meeting to San Jose will still allow the OAH to have a successful meeting and attendees will not have to change their plane tickets. Please email me to let me know that you have placed a phonecall. Jay Driskell ( jay.driskell@yale.edu )
