Major Labor Agreement Finalized Today with Connecticut Convention Center Workers


Hartford, CT – The Connecticut Laborers’ District Council announced today that it has finalized a major labor agreement with Connecticut Convention Center workers. On October 25, 2007, roughly 50 banquet and beverage servers, catering setup workers, cooks, engineers, environmental services and stewards at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, CT voted to join the union. “It’s the right step in the right direction,” said Charles LeConche, business manager, Connecticut Laborers’ District Council. “While downtown Hartford has faced several economic challenges and hurdles during the past year or so, I envision the Connecticut Laborers’ District Council developing a stronger presence within the city in the coming year and helping Hartford workers and their families to earn better wages and benefits.” Michael Costelli, general manager of the Connecticut Convention Center, said, “Both parties worked hard to resolve our differences in order to reach a settlement.”
