Staffers at the Andaz Hyatt hotel in West Hollywood are agitating for better working conditions this week, joining more than 5,000 hotel workers from national hotel and restaurant employee union UniteHere.

They began a one-week strike simultaneously in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Honolulu on Thursday.

The hotel and union are in the midst of negotiating a new contract that addresses these terms, in addition to wages and benefits. Hyatt employees want healthier conditions: to spend more time cleaning fewer rooms.
