Councilmen to boycott hotel

May 01, 2008|By John Fritze

Three members of the Baltimore City Council yesterday agreed to sign a boycott commitment against a downtown hotel that has been involved in a long-standing battle with the union representing its employees.

City Council Vice President Edward L. Reisinger and city Councilmen Bill Henry and William H. Cole IV were expected to sign boycott pledge cards against the Sheraton Baltimore City Center because of the labor dispute.

This month marked two years that doormen, housekeepers and other staff have worked without a contract, according to United Here.

The hotel was in the news last year after the Democratic National Committee moved its fall meeting from Baltimore to Virginia because of the dispute.
