The Toronto Star is reporting that a hotel union has won big against the Holiday Inn on King Street.

The 135 UNITE-HERE Local 75 members were locked out Sept. 28, by the hotel, which is owned by the Westmount Hospitality Group, one of the world’s biggest hotel operators.

CUPE gave the locked out workers a boost in October when the union cancelled room reservations made for its national convention. The Star reports the “dramatic move” cost the hotel tens of thousands of dollars.

Convention delegates also took their Oct. 17 anti-poverty rally to the hotel in support of the workers.
