With your help and the dedication of the Hotel Trades Council members and their leaders, union workers at the Hilton Albany have secured a fair contract safeguarding important benefits for members and their families.
We can all be extremely proud of the dedicated HTC members who maintained a presence on the picket line outside the Hilton Albany for four months, never once wavering during this labor dispute. We applaud Peter Ward for his leadership as the Hotel Trades Council President.
This fight showed great solidarity and I want to thank all of our union members and their affiliates who supported their sisters and brothers by joining them on the picket line and I thank all those who did the right thing and boycotted the hotel during this fight. Their support helped to send a powerful message that when working people stand together their collective voice will always be heard.
I encourage everyone to continue showing your support to our brothers and sisters of the HTC by resuming business with the Hilton Albany now that the boycott has been lifted.
