Thirty-two employees of Aloha Tower Associates, developer and manager of the waterfront restaurant and retail complex, yesterday told the National Labor Relations Board that they want to organize under Laborers' International Union of North America Local 368.
"They're looking for their job security," said Randy Perez, an organizer for the union.
The employees, including engineers, maintenance workers and housekeepers, will vote Nov. 21 on the proposal to join the union, said Tom Cestare, the NLRB's local officer-in-charge.
