On April 12, over 1,500 Washington D.C. hotel workers joined UNITE HERE International President Bruce Raynor and Local 25 Executive Secretary-Treasurer John Boardman to rally for workers’ rights and a fair contract agreement in upcoming negotiations.
“Hotel workers deserve jobs that support families,” explained Boardman. “They are fighting for a better life for themselves and their children; there are so many other hotel workers in our city who don’t even have the opportunity to achieve the American Dream because they are not part of a collective bargaining agreement.”
Over 4,500 Local 25 members are affected by collective bargaining agreements that will expire on Sept. 15. Local 25 members are calling on their employers to sign a contract that ensures affordable healthcare for families, a decent pension, and job security.
