Strong Turnout at La Playa Carmel Post-Labor Day Rally
Alex Darocy
On September 6, former La Playa Carmel workers commemorated Labor Day with a rally at the hotel at which they once worked. They continue to ask the public to boycott the 100 year old Carmel-by-the Sea landmark. Approximately 75 supporters marched and maintained a circular picket line in front of the entrance to La Playa for an hour during the late afternoon/early evening, as a number guests arrived for a charity event hosted at the hotel. The rally was part of an organized group of actions planned by the workers' union, Unite Here Local 483, that have been scheduled every few weeks during the entire summer. When several former workers spoke at the end of the rally, one pointed out that La Playa continues to place advertisements locally seeking individuals to fill a variety of positions that remain vacant, but of the former workers who lost their jobs when Sam Grossman bought the hotel earlier this year, only three out of 113 have been re-hired.
