AFSCME Delegates Marched On The Non-Union Hotels
AFSCME's enthusiastic demonstrations in behalf of HERE's Las Vegas culinary workers, carried out during the Convention there, apparently had a real impact. All of the downtown (vs. "Strip") hotels that were denying the workers a fair contract have now settled with HERE. The last of the group, the century-old Golden Gate Hotel, reached an agreement, and members of the local ratified it by a resounding vote of 118-0.
Erin Brockovich's speech "People Can Make as Difference" and Martin Sheen was made an honorary member of AFSCME.
