We reached out to board members of Gamma Zeta Alpha to inform them of the labor dispute at Palms Casino Resort, a property owned by Station Casinos. The fraternity is holding their 30-Year Gala at the Palms this December. Outreach to ΓΖΑ board members came at the heels of workers at Stations Casinos delivering a petition about Health and Safety Risks to hotel management (Read the report and press release here).
We urge GZAF to relocate your event out of Palms Casino Resort until they treat their workers with respect.

We have reached out to members of the International Association of Fire Chiefs (@IAFC) to let them know that their 2017 Fire Rescue-Med conference is being held at a property with a labor dispute. Several emails distributed by Mark Light, CEO of the IAFC state that “There is no existing labor dispute between the Green Valley Ranch and the Culinary Union.” They also affirm that IAFC members attending a conference at Green Valley Ranch “would not be crossing a picket line or inserting themselves into an ongoing labor dispute.” Full emails can be found here.

Below is an email from Carol Thompson, Vice President & General Manager of Green Valley Ranch which states “The Culinary Union has a long running dispute with Station Casinos, the owner and operator of Green Valley Ranch.” You can read the full text here
