About the Boycott

UNITE HERE Local 483 has announced a boycott of the Monterey Bay Travelodge at 2030 North Fremont Street in Monterey, California. The contract for the thirteen Latino Travelodge workers expired in December, 2003, and the hotel owner, Kilsoo Seo, of Bethel Alaska, has instituted his own demands without coming to agreement with Local 483. The Monterey Bay Travelodge workers now face:

  • ELIMINATION of all their health insurance,
  • ELIMINATION of their pension plan,
  • FREEZE of their hourly wages at $8.84, and
  • an INCREASE in their WORKDAY by 30 minutes without pay (unpaid lunch break).

We urge you to help these Travelodge workers in their struggle for a fair contract by staying at other hotels on the Monterey Bay and canceling reservations you have with the Monterey Bay Travelodge.
