Swarthmore Hotel: A Democratic Workplace

The College is proposing to build a hotel in order to improve "the livability and quality of [our] community" (The Daily Gazette, "The Swarthmore Inn Project," 20 February 2008). The community impacted by this project includes the hotel's employees. The best way to ensure the livability and quality of their workplace community is to guarantee their right to democratically organize a union if they so choose. As a member of the Swarthmore community, I support the principles of card check neutrality for Swarthmore's hotel workers because it is the best way to ensure a democratic workplace.
