Hotel workers are uniting across North America to launch a new campaign to raise awareness and build support as they seek to improve their jobs and secure better lives for themselves and their families. Despite working full time at difficult jobs with high injury rates, they still don’t earn a living wage. Hotel workers are uniting across North America to send a message to hotel companies: We are determined to make our jobs safer, middle-class jobs on which we can support our families.
Across the United States and Canada, hotel workers will be asking for support from UNITE HERE members, community leaders and allies to help them improve their lives.
Join Senator John Edwards, Actor/Director Danny Glover, Mayors and other elected officials, UNITE HERE Presidents Bruce Raynor and John Wilhelm, thousands of hotel workers, and other community, union and entertainment figures across North America:
