A short-lived, briefly-union bar closed its doors Oct. 29.
Six workers at the Guild Public House became members of Communications Workers of America Local 7901 Aug. 13, with the blessing of owners Jesse Cornett and Molly Aleshire.
But the pair announced the pub’s closure Oct. 20. “We realized that we’re unable to continue the business if we’re going to have the lives we value,” they explained.The Guild, at 1101 East Burnside St., Portland, was open less than a year. Cornett, formerly with the Oregon Bus Project, was a candidate for Portland City Council in 2010.
