Resolution in Support of Union Hotels for the DNC 2012 Convention

Resolution Number 11-04.05

WHEREAS, the labor movement has been at the forefront of economic, political and social advances in the United States; and

WHEREAS, organized labor has been the backbone of the Democratic Party, and helped it materially to craft worker-friendly public policies, win elections and advance the public welfare; and

WHEREAS, the Democratic Party has a long tradition of honoring labor by respecting the union label in choosing venues for events, printing vendors and other resource purchases;

THEREFORE, be it resolved that the California Democratic Party rejects, as inappropriate, hosting the national Democratic Party convention in a hotel and convention center where its workers do not have a voice at work and the protections of a collective bargaining agreement;

And be it further resolved that the California Democratic Party requests that in the future, the Democratic National Committee return to the same policy as that of the CDP, of holding events only at facilities where workers have a voice and protections in the form of collective bargaining agreements.
