UniteHERE President Marvin Jones with NW Regional Director Rick Sawyer, Alaska AFL-CIO President Vince Beltrami & AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka



Thank you to everyone: who helped make this a great success, for your continued support of the workers and good jobs in Alaska, and the worker-called boycotts at the Sheraton Anchorage & Anchorage Hilton hotels.



It’s been over 3 long years since workers at the Sheraton and Hilton have had a wage increase

AK AFL-CIO President Vince Beltrami addresses the crowd at the rally in front of the Anchorage Hilton where workers have been fighting for a fair contract for over 3 years



Chants of ‘What’s disgusting? Union busting! What’s outrageous? Poverty Wages!’ could be heard for blocks

Workers & supporters line the street surrounding the Kentucky-owned Anchorage Hilton









Support the boycotts by not eating, sleeping, or attending meetings at these hotels until workers can resolve a fair contract with their Kentucky-based (Hilton) and Texas-based (Sheraton) employers.

AFL-CIO President Trumka speaks to the crowd about how employers like the Texas-owned Sheraton Anchorage & Kentucky-owned Anchorage Hilton, are a cancer.

Stop hurting our community & respect Alaska working standards!


Alaskans Struggle for Dignity & Respect in Anchorage Hotel

For over three years Alaskan workers at the Hilton Anchorage have been fighting for affordable healthcare, safe workloads, job security protections, and reasonable wage increases in the face of out-of-state corporate employers, Columbia Sussex. Dozens of Community members came out, in spite of the not quite Spring  temps, to Picket the Anchorage Hilton on May 3rd & show their support for Good Jobs in Alaska!


Boycott Sheraton

For over three years, Sheraton management has been breaking federal labor laws by enforcing sub-standard working conditions. Texas owned & managed Sheraton Anchorage was found guilty, by an Administrative Law Judge with the National Labor Relations Board of disciplining  & threatening its employees, Alaskan workers, members of our community. The Boycott of the Sheraton Anchorage continues with strong showings of support from the residents on Anchorage & Alaska. This picket was held on April 15th, 2012

Enough is Enough!
