Labor union creates website on Hilton timeshares

HONOLULU (AP) - A labor union in difficult negotiations with the Hilton Hawaiian Village Resort and Spa in Waikiki has created a website casting aspersions on the timeshares sold there.

Unite Here Local 5 announced Wednesday that the site will provide information on taxes and fees, future construction, the labor dispute and sales tactics to potential buyers of Grand Vacations timeshare buyers.

About 1,500 of the hotel's workers walked off the job for five days in October over the lingering negotiations. The union also has staged loud, periodic protests at the hotel.

There was no immediate comment from Hilton about the website.
