Hotel Worker on Captive Meetings

From an April 8, 2019, article in Bloomberg Law:

"Joe Hutchinson, a front desk clerk at the Sheraton Stamford Hotel, said in an interview that mandatory employee meetings were a key part of a union-breaking strategy employed by the hotel in late 2018. He said he and 125 of his fellow hotel workers were forced to attend dozens of mandatory workplace meetings at which the only topic discussed by managers and hired consultants was why employees shouldn’t join a union.

“'It was just a nonstop barrage of anti-union stories,' said Hutchinson, adding that the meetings were from 9 a.m. to 3 a.m. for four weeks. 'It was very intimidating, and exhausting.' Davidson Hotels of Atlanta, owner of the Sheraton Stamford Hotel, declined to comment."
