Hotel workers at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco have walked off their jobs this morning, according to union representatives.

About 400 workers are apparently using the hotel company's shareholder meeting in Chicago this week to highlight ongoing contract disagreements and walk off their jobs at the hotel at 5 Embarcadero Center at around 6 a.m.

More walkouts and worker boycotts are expected this week at other Hyatt properties, according to Unite Here! Local 2 spokesperson Riddhi Mehta.
