America’s Next Top Picket

Finally, the Gossip is able to give you a story legitimately linking our two great loves, trade union activism and reality TV. No, it’s not “Survivor: Blackball” or one of the apprentices taking a personal grievance against Donald Trump for unjustified dismissal. Instead, auditions for ‘America’s Next Top Model’ were moved to avoid crossing the picket line of hotel workers at the Congress Plaza Hotel in Chicago. Both the models and the union members were described as “striking.”

Following a swarm of concerned phone calls and e-mails, producers of the show sent an e-mail to leaders of the American Federation of Radio and Television Artists union, announcing that the event had been moved “due to the long-standing labor dispute with the Congress Plaza Hotel and its union workers.” Fierce!
