If You're Wondering if the Chancellor & the Board of Trustees Cares About Workers...

...they don't.

CSU Chancellor Reed
For some reason, Chancellor Reed & the Trustees felt they needed to hold a closed session meeting in the Hyatt hotel down the street, instead of having the meeting in their usual space: their multi-million dollar Chancellor's Office (located on a street literally called "Golden Shores").

The problem is that the Hyatt is currently under boycott by hotel workers under Unite Here Local 11.  And not only have workers and community members asked them months ago to honor the picket line and not cross it, but state Assembly Speaker John Perez, Superintendent Tom Torlakson and Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom all wrote a letter asking them to honor the picket line and just hold their meeting in the Chancellor's Office instead.

...And they promptly crossed the picket line anyway.

I bet these folks leave lousy tips, too.
