The Hotel workers are fighting for a reduced workload, improved workplace safety policy, and better pay.
UNITE HERE members are majority female and majority immigrants, predominantly working in housekeeping, food service, facilities, and banquets.
“I’m fighting for better pay,” said Hamdi Farah, who has worked as a housekeeper at the Hilton for 14 years. “My pay is not enough to pay to my bills. My days here are stressful. I do hard work, sometimes fifteen room checkouts a day. But after I pay my bills there’s nothing left, I still have to give up things my family needs.”
