Hotel workers and other activists started out a with a rally at city hall and then marched to the steps of the former YWCA building on Monday evening to urge the Pasadena City Council to support a “labor peace agreement” to govern that site after it becomes a new hotel.

About 45 people attended the march to the rundown YWCA building, which will become part of a planned Kimpton “boutique hotel” complex, along with a new six-story, 80,000 square foot mega complex.

UNITE HERE Local 11 and its supporters want the city council to build a labor union agreement to support future hotel workers at this and other sites.

The Pasadena Hilton hotel is the only unionized hotel in the city.

Supporters say labor peace agreements would ensure that workers and management work together rather than combatively to minimize operational disruption. Labor peace requirements have been approved on city-owned land in Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Santa Monica.
