It will cover a large ground level space in the new “El Centro” complex in downtown Hollywood. This is just 2 blocks east and 2 blocks north of the current location, and right next door to the Fonda Theatre. 

While it is a bit smaller, Amoeba will be able to house all the usual formats and goodies. It is a virtual Hollywood institution. The store expects to close temporarily to get set up. In the interim, the store will continue to have live shows, signings, DJ Sets, and meet-and-greet events every week, as they do now.

In addition, the trade counter will be right up front in the new location, like it is now. There will be a few short-term meters on Argyle for easy unloading.

In the El Centro complex there will be great L.A.-based businesses such as Urban Radish Market & Healthy Spot as our neighbors. Next door is the always rockin’ Fonda Theatre, and just across Hollywood Blvd. is the new Funko Pop store and Shake Shack, with the historic Pantages Theater and Frolic Room just west of us on Hollywood Blvd. Additionally, there are many eateries, coffee shops, retail shopping, and the huge W Hotel all within easy walking distance.

According to Mayor Garcetti, “Los Angeles is a creative capital — a place filled with dreamers who move and inspire us every day. Amoeba Music reflects the best of this creative spirit, and Angelenos are fortunate this beloved cultural treasure has found a new home guaranteeing its place in our city for years to come.” 

In the words of Mitch O’Farrell, Los Angeles City Councilmember, “I think I speak for most Angelenos when I say that we are thrilled that our beloved Amoeba Music is staying in Hollywood.”

Mr. C Beverly Hills Hotel Workers to Bargain for Union Contract

Published

on

BEVERLY HILLS — On November 1, 2019, housekeeping workers at Mr. C participated in an election to be represented by UNITE HERE Local 11. The union believes that once legal challenges concerning the election are settled, it will have prevailed and the hotel will be unionized.

If Local 11 is certified as the employees’ bargaining agent, it expects to propose significant improvements to wages, benefits and working conditions as part of the housekeeping workers’ first collective bargaining agreement.

Although wage and benefit standards vary across hotels that employ workers who are represented by Local 11, wages will reach $25 per hour at many Los Angeles-area hotels by 2023. At most of these hotels, members are also participants in union health care and pension plans.

The Mr. C Beverly Hills hotel is not covered by a labor peace agreement. Labor disputes at other Los Angeles-area hotels have included strikes, regular picket lines, and boycotts. For example, the Terranea Resort in nearby Rancho Palos Verdes, California, is the subject of a much publicized, women-led boycott (see metooterranea.org for details).

During the union election at Mr. C, management challenged the voting eligibility of three workers employed as room inspectors, causing the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) to impound their ballots. If tallied for the union, the three outstanding ballots will contribute to a majority vote for unionization.

In a lengthy decision issued on January 10, an NLRB Hearing Officer concluded that the three workers were eligible to vote, rejected the employer’s other objections, and issued a recommendation that the impounded ballots be counted. The employer has filed exceptions to this recommendation, which is presently before regional NLRB regional leadership.

UNITE HERE Local 11 is a labor union representing over 32,000 hospitality workers in Southern California and Arizona who work in hotels, restaurants, universities, convention centers and airports.
