    Stockton Street was blocked off Thursday afternoon as hundreds of union and nonunion workers protested in front of the Grand Hyatt hotel, causing the venue’s management to wonder why.
    Police said approximately 80 people were cited for civil disobedience. Unite Here Local 2, which represents 12,000 hospitality workers throughout San Francisco and San Mateo County, organized eight other protests nationwide, which included a combination of union and nonunion Hyatt locations.

    “Workers are not linen,” the signs held by picketers read.
