CSExposed.org is a project of UNITE HERE, an organization of more than 300,000 hospitality workers in the United States and Canada. Our members working at the Columbia Sussex-owned Hilton Anchorage Hotel in Anchorage, Alaska say working conditions deteriorated after Columbia Sussex purchased the property in 2006. Employees have been forced to work without a contract for more than ten years, losing their good union health care plan and earning raises only when mandated by state law. The federal government took the Hilton Anchorage to trial before the National Labor Relations Board in the fall of 2019 for alleged labor law violations. The State of Alaska’s OSHA office has cited the hotel for 23 health and safety violations since 2015.
