Mountain West Regional Council of Carpenters have decided not to force a public referendum on a planned 1,100-room convention center hotel in Denver, Colorado, clearing not only the obstacles to starting construction but also to the sale of 347.3 million dollars of hotel revenue bonds to finance the project. The carpenters had objected to an initial proposal regarding hotel revenue bonds unless the city agreed to hire primarily union construction workers to build the hotel. On June 5, union leaders said officials from the city's economic development department promised that unions would receive fair consideration on bids they submit to participate in the hotel's construction.
