The Convention Industry Council (CIC) issued a strong statement April 1 in response to recent labor disputes between hotels and their union employees in various U.S. cities. In it, CIC says it "does not support tactics that include any misrepresentation or attempt to force industry professionals to boycott hotels at which these disputes may arise." A list of recommendations for those contacted regarding labor disputes can be found on the councils web site: www.conventionindustry.org.
