On July 23, dozens of neighbors, community allies and former Chateau Marmont employees marched in front of the West Hollywood landmark hotel carrying signs in protest of the management’s treatment of workers. The protest was organized by UNITE HERE Local 11, a union that represents over 30,000 hospitality workers. Participants voiced strong objections to the hotel’s treatment of laid off workers. One such worker had been a bellman for 23 years before being terminated and losing his health insurance. The peaceful protesters delivered a letter addressed to owner André Balazs signed by 300 community members, religious leaders, clergy, politicians and more condemning the treatment of Hollywood’s “unsung heroes.”
