Carmel Becomes Center of Conflict in Monterey Bay Hotel Industry Hotel workers, community members, and friends gathered on June 7th for the "Carmel Hotel Workers Rising March" which was organized by Unite Here! Local 483, and focused on La Playa Hotel and the Pine Inn in Carmel.

Community members have held a number of demonstrations protesting the Pine Inn's elimination of all dependents (42 people) from medical insurance coverage, as well as La Playa Hotel's refusal to commit to re-hire workers who lost their jobs when the hotel recently changed ownership. In addition, a "Summer Solstice Street Heat Rally" is planned for June 20th.

Representatives of Unite Here! Local 483, a labor union that supports hotel and restaurant workers in Monterey and Santa Cruz, has declared that Carmel is, "the center of labor conflict in the Monterey Bay hotel industry today."
