Workers picket in front of West Hollywood Hyatt
Protesters try to get people in the Hyatt Andaz hotel to checkout as approximately 100 workers from Local 11 union rally in front of the hotel on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood.
Workers are complaining about not having a contract for the last eight months, saying Hyatt is using the economy as an excuse to eliminate jobs, reduce hours and forgo raises. Union workers at Hyatt Hotels in Hawaii and Toronto are also striking Thursday.
