CSU community encouraged to use union hotels

In a letter sent Tuesday, CSU union leaders called on Chancellor White and the CSU community as a whole to use hotels that have union contracts with their employees when holding meetings and events.

“As a state agency, the CSU has an obligation to the communities that it serves to patronize employers who pay fair wages and work with their employees to create good working conditions,” they write.

“We encourage all members of the CSU community to use union hotels out of concern for all Californians.”

The letter is from the CSU Labor Council, which consists of unions that represent CSU staff, trades workers, graduate students and faculty, including CFA. Organizations can find fair hotels and learn which hotels are being boycotted by worker advocates at www.fairhotel.org
