Put your money where your mouth is
Hotel Labor Advisor
Conference season is here and I, like most other members of my tribe, go academic meetings at convention hotels to mouthe--to present papers, eat, drink and talk.
This year it turns out that the convention hotel for my professional society's conference is involved in a labor dispute. With the convention two weeks away it's too late to move the meetings but many of us are doing what we can to see to it that the hotel doesn't benefit from our business any more than necessary. I'll be canceling my reservation and moving to a "safe" hotel nearby.
The hotel workers' union maintains a list of hotels that are safe from labor disputes here. I wish I'd found out about this sooner!
This site is a good resource of you're on board with unrepentant liberalism and I urge you to check it out if you're looking for a hotel or making plans for a meeting.
