Golden Globe Awards picket averted as Beverly Hilton settles union contract

The prospect of a picket outside the Beverly Hilton on Golden Globe Awards Day has now been averted as the hotel has reached a tentative deal to end a walkout that has been going on for weeks.

The hotel and Unite Here Local 11 released a joint statement Friday afternoon. „The iconic Beverly Hilton and its staff have worked together to set the stage for awards season, and we’re thrilled to be able to do so again,” the statement said.

After two long strikes that dominated Hollywood this year, the possibility of striking workers targeting the Globes would have been a big problem for many attendees. Many actors and writers who went on strike for months earlier this year will not want to cross the picket line to attend a glitzy awards ceremony. The 81st Annual Golden Globe Awards will air live on CBS on January 7th. Nominations will be released on Dec. 11.

Hotel workers affiliated with Unite Here Local 11 have been on strike since July against dozens of hotels in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and Santa Monica. The union’s focus is on securing strong wage increases to offset steep inflation, as well as improvements in health care and retirement benefits.

Labor action by Unite Here continues in other parts of the city. Striking workers have been concentrated in and around Los Angeles International Airport in recent days, where hotel and food service workers are on strike.
