Union, hotels talking again

Talks are set to resume Thursday between hotel management and workers, though union officials say they have “very low expectations” of an agreement being reached.

Unite Here! Local 2, the union representing 9,000 employees at 61 San Francisco hotels, will be entering Day 3 of a strike at the downtown Palace Hotel. The walkout, involving about 350 workers, is expected to end Friday morning.

Last week, about 300 union workers boycotted the Grand Hyatt Union Square for three days. The union said it will stage walkouts at one hotel at a time until it receives its desired contract.

The union will discuss a contract with Grand Hyatt management Thursday. It is the second meeting between the sides in as many weeks.
