LA hotels offering a deal they hope UNITE HERE can't refuse


From hotel-online: Nine Los Angeles Hotels Present Radically Restructured Economic Proposal to UNITE HERE Local 11. A snip:

    The new proposal offers a $1,000 signing bonus and a more than 20% wage hike for non-tipped employees over the four-year term of the contract. The offer also includes free-health care -- without co-pays, deductibles or employee contributions of any kind -- and an increase to pension and health and welfare funds.

The hotels say it's a one-time, take-it-or-leave-it offer. It'll be interesting to see what happens. I'm guessing the union will say no, but I've been wrong before, and it's a pretty sweet deal. For more info, contact Los Angeles Hotel Employer's Council.

Update: No sooner had I posted this than my colleague, Dave Kovaleski, found this LA Times article:

    Unite Here Local 11 Secretary-Treasurer Tom Walsh said a four-year contract offer wouldn't get far here. "This tells me two things," he said. "First, they can afford a better economic package. Second, and more importantly, they're still not listening to us."
