One of the biggest issues in the "long term struggle" spoken of by Neal Kwatra, is that the AAA will return to SF in 2006. This is a problem. Much of the current UNITE struggle is a desire by UNITE to extend their contract for two more years - at which time the contract will again come up for renewal. The difference will be, and the reason management is fighting this so fiercely, that in 2006 the contracts of additional hotel worker's all over the country will also come up for renewal at the same time. This means that the management will have to fight unions all over the country instead of only in SF. By swapping Atlanta this year for SF in 2006 the AAA has essentially put the problem on hold for two years rather than really solving it.
