Do NOT attend any event held at a boycotted hotel

Since July 2023, thousands of hotel workers across Southern California have been walking off the job in the largest hotel strike in U.S. history. They are fighting for a wage that will enable them to live in the communities where they work.

Dozens of hotels have agreed to new fair contracts with hotel workers BUT many Aimbridge-operated hotels have not!

Workers have called for a boycott of Aimbridge hotels and ask you to choose alternate locations for all travel and events. During a labor dispute, boycott, or strike, there could be 24-hour picket lines outside hotels. If there is a strike, there may be no one taking out the trash, cooking the food, or cleaning the rooms.

  • At multiple Aimbridge properties, complaints have been filed with the California Labor Commissioner alleging exploitation of unhoused migrant workers.
  • Housekeepers at an Aimbridge property filed a class-action lawsuit alleging violations of panic buttons and other worker safety provisions of the Los Angeles Hotel Worker Protection Ordinance. A purpose of this ordinance is to help protect workers from sexual assault in the workplace.
  • The workers’ union filed federal unfair labor practice charges at multiple Aimbridge properties, alleging that managers unlawfully interfered with the rights of employees to engage in union activity. The charges are still pending investigation.
  • Aimbridge refuses to sign a fair collective bargaining agreement that meets workers’ demands at multiple hotel properties across Los Angeles and Orange counties.
