Piscataway, NJ– One hundred and sixty UNITE HERE members at Meritex Industrial Laundry in Piscataway, NJ won an important contract fight this month. Meritex, which is owned by Hilton, will double its contributions for workers’ medical insurance over three years, giving our members real hospitalization coverage for the first time. Workers also won paid sick days and secured wage increases well above the cost of living. Solidarity from UNITE HERE members at Local 54 in Atlantic City, NJ and Local 100 in New York played a crucial role in this victory for members of the Laundry, Dry-Cleaning & Allied Workers Joint Board. Congratulations to the Meritex Bargaining Committee: Bechir Cajuste, Ana Gamboa, Mamoune Fileus, Marta Manzano and Sandra Schomburg.
