The 74 employees of the 362-room Hilton Downtown Financial District in Boston have voted to join the hotel workers' union, Unite Here. They are now members of Boston Local 26, which has about 6,000 members. The organizing process began in September 2011 with underground meetings, followed by picketing and a sit-in at the general manager's office. The property offers 10,000 square feet of meeting space.
