Washington, DC-"During an exciting reception this Wednesday attended by dozens of high profile national organizations and community leaders, the Informed Meetings Exchange (INMEX) was launched to help advise meeting planners that want information on the labor situation at hotels in cities across North America. UNITE HERE has established INMEX to help organizations spend their hotel group business dollars in a way that is more consistent with their institutional values. INMEX is also designed to transform the hotel industry into one that treats its employees fairly and provides them with living wages, access to affordable healthcare, retirement security and a voice in the workplace.
INMEX has already signed up more than 100 organizations that spend more than $196 million annually on hotel costs and count about 418,000 meeting attendees. To learn more, go to www.inmex.org.
