Boston, MA: The hotel workers represented by the UNITE HERE Local 26 labor union are on strike against seven Boston area hotels. For three weeks noisy picket lines have been at the hotels on strike asking people not to cross the picket line and to cancel any use of the hotels. Numerous civic and social organizations and businesses have canceled their previously planned events at the hotels where workers are striking.
But, a number of professional sports team union members have crossed the workers picket lines to stay at rooms their management had gotten for them. Some of the highest paid union members could not be bothered helping some of the lowest paid union members.
The LA Dodgers crossed the picket lines, the Edmonton Oilers crossed the picket line.
On Thursday, 25 October 2018, the Philadelphia Flyers crossed the picket lines to stay at Boston’s Ritz-Carlton Hotel.
