UNITE HERE Local 8 members have been in negotiations with the Edgewater, the Space Needle and the Seattle Hilton for many months. At all three places, the workers are fighting for their job security, and their union. In this economic climate, workers need to know they can’t be thrown under the bus at any moment. Our struggle is more than a series of contract negotiations, it is a vision for Seattle tourism that includes a middle class life for local workers. It is a city-wide fight, with many battles.
You can help. Here’s how:
