Stop Harassing & Firing SF Hotel Workers

Stockton St. & Sutter St.
San Francisco hotel owners are getting ready for a strike and are firing union activists who are standing up
for the members. One of the Unite-Here Local 2 members who has been recently terminated is Esther Dominguez
who worked as a housekeeper at the Grand Hyatt on Union Square for over 33 years. She was fired on
January 31, 2009.
She was framed up and fired on fabricated charges. Last year, she defended housekeepers at the
hotel who had been mistreated with their senority ignored and management did not forget her act
of solidarity. She was supposed to have an union arbitration on her case on Thursday June 18 but the
management lawyers cancelled it and said they were not "ready". This means that Esther continues
to be out of work.
At the same time management has tried to arrest Esther for peacefully picketing on the sidewalk in
front of the hotel. Manager David Nadelman has called the police on her and tried to stop her from
picketing. This attack on democratic rights by Nadelman and the management is another example of
how they treat union members. They claimed the "sidewalks" belong to the hotel but this is not true.
We need to let management know that the working people of San Francisco will not allow this
anti-labor management to run roughshod over worker and human rights. Housekeepers have one
of the most difficult jobs in the hotel and many housekeepers are injured on the job due to the large
number of rooms they must clean and also the new beds, which are difficult to move.
Hotel management cannot be allowed to intimidate and terrorize workers who stand up for their
rights on the job! Labor Rights Are Human Rights.
The Local 2 Committee to Defend Fired Workers is calling on hotel workers and all working
people to call SF Grand Hyatt manager David Nadelman at (415) 398-1234 and let him know that
Esther Dominguez should be rehired now!
