UNITE HERE Launches App to Help Socially Conscious Travelers Find Union Hotels
Nov 14 12
UNITE HERE announced that is launching a Union Hotel Guide App to make it easier for travelers to find union hotels. The Union Hotel Guide App lists approved union hotels and hotels where UNITE HERE members are on strike, boycotting, or there is a risk of dispute, guiding travelers to choose socially responsible hotels. In union hotels workers earn decent wages, have safe working conditions and access to affordable healthcare. In many non-union hotels workers earn minimum wage with few or no benefits, have little job security and unsafe working conditions. For the thousands of people who work in the hospitality industry, having a union hotel job means the different between middle class jobs that sustain families and jobs that keep people in poverty. The Union Hotel Guide App helps travelers avoid hotels that do not treat their workers fairly. Hyatt workers have launched a global boycott to end the company's abuse of housekeepers. The global boycott impacts most of the hundreds of Hyatt properties nationwide. The Union Hotel Guide App makes clear which hotels are under boycott or at risk of dispute, including hundreds of Hyatt properties across North America.
