Hotel strike during DC inauguration?

DC hotels, workers break off talks

Contract talks between the local hotel union and 14 large D.C. hotels ended abruptly last night as negotiators for the hotels refused to increase their pay and benefits offer, complicating efforts to avoid a strike before the presidential inauguration next week. Unite Here Local 25 officials have said they will take action, possibly including a strike, if there is no new contract by Saturday.

Hmm, with huge anti-Bush demos in the streets plus a hotel strike, things could get downright interesting come Jan. 20.
