.Woodfin and Workers Settle

The East Bay’s most contentious labor dispute in recent years has finally come to an end. Housecleaners at Emeryville’s Woodfin Suites Hotel have argued for four years that they were underpaid under the city’s Measure C, a living-wage law for hospitality workers. But after an order by the city, a ruling by an Alameda County Superior judge, and a three-year boycott could not compel the hotel to ante up $200,000 in back pay to more than fifty employees, they have finally agreed to hand over the cash.

Some of it, at least.
