Pacific Beach Hotel violated U.S. labor law, agency rules

Pacific Beach Hotel

The labor board has ordered the Pacific Beach Hotel to reinstate workers and pay back wages and union expenses.

Pacific Beach Hotel management is reviewing its legal options in the wake of a recent decision from the National Labor Relations Board that found the hotel violated numerous provisions of federal labor law.

The board ruled that the hotel discriminated against employees and that it bargained in bad faith with the International Longshore & Warehouse Union (ILWU) Local 142, which first filed a petition for recognition in 2002.

Dave Mori, a spokesman for ILWU [Local 142], said the decision reaffirms the rights of Pacific Beach Hotel workers, who have been locked in a 10-year-struggle with management. However, the legal battle continues, Mori said.
