Workers engage in civil disobedience to protest mass layoffs

Twenty hotel workers were arrested on March 1 at the HEI-owned and managed Hilton Mission Valley.  Nearly 250 hotel workers, community activists and clergy members protested job insecurity at the hotel. HEI has announced that it is selling the Hilton Mission Valley to Tarsadia Investments.  HEI informed workers of the potential of mass layoffs when Tarsadia takes over later this  month. More layoffs are bad for San Diego and bad for California. Click here to see more photos of the action.
