Hundreds protest to keep jobs at Hilton Mission Valley

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Twenty hotel workers at risk of losing their jobs were arrested Friday afternoon during a protest at the Hilton Mission Valley Hotel.

Police were called after about 250 protesters entered the hotel lobby, blocking business and chanting.

Protesters say the hotel's current owner, HEI, refuses to protect the employees' jobs when the hotel is bought out later this month.

All employees, regardless of their position or tenure, are required to reapply.

"We just know that the workers have been told that they can be interviewed and maybe they'll keep their job, maybe they won't. But that's not good enough," says Unite Here Local 30 President Brigette Browning.

The employees expect to find out on March 6th if they will keep their jobs.
