The Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees Union (Local 1) is still on strike, dragging out a fight with the Congress Hotel (Congress and Michigan) that started in early June. Twenty workers were arrested on Labor Day for blocking Michigan Avenue, and currently the striking workers -- many of them immigrants -- remain camped outside the entrance, encouraging walk-ups to go elsewhere, providing lists of unionized hotels.
