News From the Region

A lengthy labor dispute between the Westin Providence Hotel and the union that represents its workers has been resolved by a contract agreement between the parties, averting a trial before an NLRB Administrative Law Judge.

The contract, which gradually restores wages and benefits to levels they were at before the dispute, was overwhelmingly ratified by members of UNITE-HERE Local 217 on February 15. As a result, union officials yesterday withdrew all NLRB charges.

A settlement has been reached in a case involving the discharge of a Connecticut ambulance service employee for posting negative comments about a supervisor on her Facebook page.
