Westin L.A. suspends 25 hotel workers

May 10, 2007|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

The Westin Los Angeles Airport hotel suspended 25 workers after they refused to remove buttons bearing the name of the union engaged in a bitter organizing campaign at the hotel, workers and union officials said.

Hotel managers did not return a phone call seeking comment.

The Westin and other nonunion hotels near LAX have been the targets of an organizing campaign by Unite Here, an international union representing hotel workers, for more than a year.
