The Edgewater Hotel
WALL STREET and Alaskan Way
Monday, December 19th
4pm – 5pm
Featuring “A Tale of Two Christmases”
What do hotel workers want for the Holidays?
- Job Security
- Livable Wages
- Safe Workloads
Two weeks ago UNITE HERE Local 8 reached a tentative agreement with the Westin Seattle! That agreement includes a guarantee from the owner that Westin workers will keep their jobs even if the hotel is sold. The agreement also includes wage and benefit increases, higher shift minimums, and workload reductions for housekeepers.
It’s a great victory for Seattle, and we could not have done this without community support. The continued pressure had a major impact, and gave great moral support for the workers to hold firm until a favorable settlement was reached.
But we can’t rest until ALL hotels in Seattle have good union standards. As we continue the boycott at the Seattle Hilton until they guarantee job security, we are putting the spotlight on the Edgewater Hotel to demand a fair contract there as well.
The Westin victory shows that when we fight, we win!
Join us at the Edgewater on Monday, December 19th at 4pm to fight for justice in the hospitality industry!
