On the heels of an exciting community event last week, UNITE HERE! Local 8 members started to turn up the heat on hospitality employers in the streets of downtown Seattle. At a rally for immigrant and workers’ rights in front of the Seattle Hilton, hotel workers united with thousands of people demonstrating for immigrant and workers’ rights.
“We are workers, we are one,” was the message of unity and support for workers directed at the Hilton and other King County hospitality employers. Watch videos of the moment when the May Day march arrived at the Hilton. You can also find pictures of the rally here.
