Thousands of Chicago Hotel Workers Turn Out for Strike Vote

ANNOUNCER LEAD-IN (roughly 30 seconds): Thousands of hotel workers turned out for an historic strike vote on Monday in downtown Chicago. More than 98 percent of the voting rank and file of the Hotel and Restaurant Employees Local 1 empowered their negotiating committee to call a strike if management fails to offer a fair settlement by August 31, the day their contract expires. The union elected new leadership last year, and the rank and file is energized -- and in no mood for compromise. Chris Geovanis reports from Chicago.
