Hilton Albany Picket Line Lifted!

The Westhampton Library Staff Association is happy to hear from the Hotel Trades Council, which has announced that it has signed an excellent union contract with the Hilton Albany, ending the boycott of the hotel.

Management agreed to drop all of its demands for givebacks from the employees. Instead, the employees will keep their pension plan, and have won significant wage increases, improvements in health and other benefits, and additional rights and protections.
