Hotel workers have voted to authorize a strike that will affect thousands of employees in the Chicago area. The employees work at the Chicago Hilton, the O'Hare Hilton, the Palmer House and the Drake.

The union Unite Here has been in contract negotiations with the Hilton and other city hotel chains since August 2008.

There is no timetable yet for an actual strike.
