By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 12:43 p.m. HST, Mar 08, 2013

Union workers at the Modern Honolulu unanimously voted Thursday night to authorize a potential strike because of their unhappiness over working conditions at the luxury hotel.

About 260 workers represented by Unite Here Local 5 would be affected if they walk off the job.

No date for the potential strike has been set.

I like Holiday Inn. We stay there all around the world. Some of them are really nice and they have a free breakfast that isn't half bad.

As long as the hotel complies with all state and local laws, babooze union members have nothing to whine about. You knew the conditions of the job when you started, what has changed? Or are you working too hard? Don't like working there, leave. Find another job. Plenty more workers behind you willing to take the job. Union or non union, doesn't matter. Give us a break.
