“Law Professors in Support of the Hilton Workers”

Post to Twitter

Information here!

Many law profs are respecting the boycott and will not enter the Hilton during the AALS. I will be one of them. As the linked website notes:

The cleaners, cooks, dish washers, and kitchen, door, bar, bell hop, wait, laundry, and desk staff have asked that we honor the boycott they have called. The hotel employs many immigrants who are among the most vulnerable workers in the labor force. The Hilton workers already bear a significant part of the costs of the boycott they have called in lost shifts, tips, and overtime hours. They face the Blackstone Group, the world’s largest private equity “asset manager,” which recently acquired Hilton and is now attempting to drive down costs. Blackstone insists on wage and benefit concessions. The workers have refused and have worked without a contract for more than a year. They are represented by UNITE HERE Local 2, a notably progressive union.
