PLANO, Texas, Jan. 11, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Aimbridge Hospitality, a leading, global hospitality management company and the world’s largest third-party hotel operator, today announced that six union hotels operated by the company in Southern California—five in Los Angeles County and one in Anaheim—have signed a new proposal with UNITE HERE Local 11, joining two hotels that signed in 2023. The memoranda of agreement includes non-tipped wage increases of up to $10 per hour, as well as continued contributions to health care and retirement, and goes through Jan. 15, 2028.

Properties signing the proposal this week include:

  • DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Los Angeles Downtown
  • DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel San Pedro – Port of Los Angeles
  • Hilton Pasadena
  • Hyatt Regency LAX
  • Holiday Inn Los Angeles – LAX Airport
  • Sheraton Park Hotel at the Anaheim Resort

Aimbridge-managed properties that previously signed proposals with the union are The Westin Bonaventure Hotel & Suites Los Angeles and the Laguna Cliffs Marriott Resort & Spa.

Throughout the negotiations, the company has worked tirelessly on behalf of these hotel owners to bring UNITE HERE Local 11 to the table for productive conversations that would result in a fair and equitable agreement. Aimbridge has consistently stated that its top priority has always been, and will continue to be, taking care of people, especially its associates.

“We are pleased to move forward with a memoranda of agreement with UNITE HERE Local 11 that reflects our commitment to our associates and includes thoughtful increases in non-tipped wages and continued contributions to health care and retirement,” said Mark Tamis, Global President, Aimbridge. “We are urging the Union to act by countersigning the proposal so that we can implement these wage increases at these properties, including providing retroactive payments.
