Hotel Industry Comments On U.S. Supreme Court NLRB Ruling
On January 4, 2012, the Obama Administration made three “recess” appointments to fill vacancies on the NLRB while the Senate was in a pro forma session. Throughout this process, AH&LA contended that bypassing the Senate to fill these vacancies violated the Constitution, leaving the NLRB with only one active member and lacking the necessary quorum for conducting much of its business since the date of their appointment.
Serving the hospitality industry for more than a century, the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) is the sole national association representing all segments of the 1.8 million-employee U.S. lodging industry, including hotel owners, REITs, chains, franchisees, management companies, independent properties, state hotel associations, and industry suppliers. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., AH&LA provides focused advocacy, communications support, and educational resources for an industry generating $155.5 billion in annual sales from 4.9 million guestrooms.
