Abstract

As part of the development package to build a major hotel with significant public funding in Minneapolis, Minnesota, labor organizations were granted rights to access employees at work and to seek voluntary recognition based on signed authorization cards and the management company pledged to remain neutral in any organizing drive. Thirty-two days after the hotel's opening, the employees achieved union representation. This case contains important lessons for labor law reform and for local unions seeking innovative organizing strategies.
