Newsom to return Friday after retreat 

Mayor Gavin Newsom will be back in City Hall on Friday, his spokesman said Thursday afternoon.

Newsom has presumably been at a resort in Hawaii since Tuesday. It has been six days since the mayor has appeared publicly following his withdrawal from the 2010 governor’s race.

The mayor announced his return to work while a major labor dispute is brewing in The City. Hotel workers at the Grand Hyatt Union Square went on strike Thursday morning.

He will meet with the union and hotels as soon as possible, spokesman Nathan Ballard said.

It has been six days since the mayor has appeared publicly following his withdrawal from the 2010 governor’s race. The mayor abruptly left The City on Tuesday morning to join his family on a Big Island resort.

The departure also left questions about whether the mayor followed proper protocol in designating Supervisor Carmen Chu as acting mayor.
