Amid Union Battle, Hotel Workers from Trump Las Vegas Head to Manhattan’s Trump HQ, Calling on Trump to Negotiate a Contract

Workers to Trump: “Make America Great Again – Negotiate a Contract with Us Like Your Company Did with Canadian Employees” 
WHAT: Trump International Hotel Las Vegas employees recently won a union election and are inviting Donald Trump to the bargaining table to negotiate a first contract. 

WHEN: Thursday, March 3, 2016, 9:00-10:00am  

WHERE: Trump Tower – 725 5th Avenue, New York, NY 10022 

WHO: Trump Las Vegas employees, who are members of the Trump Hotel Negotiating Committee, joined by members of UNITE HERE, the union of hospitality workers.

WHY: In December 2015, hundreds of Trump Hotel employees in Las Vegas voted to form a union. Since that time, Trump’s company has refused to honor the results of that election and negotiate a first contract with its employees. 

Now, Trump Las Vegas employees are calling on the world-famous negotiator to make a deal. Last year, Trump’s company negotiated a first contract with hotel workers in Toronto after workers there won a union election. Las Vegas workers say to “Make America Great Again,” Trump should start by negotiating a fair deal with them just like his company did with its Canadian workers. 

In the hopes of catching his ear, Trump Las Vegas workers will follow him on the campaign trail with an appeal to negotiate. Members of the Trump Hotel Negotiating Committee will visit five cities across the U.S. during the March primaries.
