HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Dozens of Local 5 Union members and hotel workers picketed outside the Trump International Hotel in Waikiki Thursday, calling for a boycott of all Trump products.

They're standing in solidarity with Trump Hotel Las Vegas employees who say Trump's management company is refusing to negotiate with them after they won a unionization vote.

"Being unionized, we have a stronger relation with the workers and better life, better pay, medical, future for our families, friends and kids," said Jonathan Ching, former Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel employee.

Media groups in Las Vegas were unsuccessful in getting a response from the Trump companies. Donald Trump Jr. reportedly said he wasn't aware of any pending negotiations.
