Over the past several years, private equity and private equity real estate managers have come to play a growing role in the hospitality industry.

Rather than dealing with managers solely when issues or disputes arise, UNITE HERE is undertaking a more proactive approach to achieving labor harmony at private equity-owned companies and properties by reaching out to managers to identify opportunities to work together.

Responsible managers are managers that have reached an agreement ensuring labor peace at hospitality-related properties or companies, creating a basis for cooperation.

Irresponsible managers are managers that have refused multiple requests to meet, have refused to identify places to work together, or have had a long-standing, unresolved dispute at a hospitality-related property or portfolio company.
