The New Jersey State AFL-CIO is asking you to support our UNITE HERE 54 brothers and sisters, who have been negotiating in good faith and whose employer recently cut health care coverage for workers. This contract dispute is ongoing and HAS NOT been resolved.
Our brothers and sisters at UNITE HERE 54 report that the owner of the Wyndham Garden Hotel near the state Capitol in Trenton abruptly changed the conditions of employment for 53 employees last month.
Hotel owner Edison Holding/Welcome Hotel Group LLC canceled health insurance benefits, quit paying for earned time off and began demanding that employees perform additional jobs for which they are not compensated. An unfair labor practice complaint has been filed with the National Labor Relations Board.
These practices are continuing. We therefore remind our one million members and their families, our union allies and lawmakers keep this situation in mind when booking meetings and making travel arrangements. Please continue to stand with our UNITE HERE 54 brothers and sisters until this situation is resolved.
