UNITE HERE Key Developments

Unite Here Appoints D. Taylor as President

Unite Here announced that it has elected D. Taylor as its President. John Wilhelm, who had served as the President of Unite Here since 2009, retired on November 29 at the meeting of the Unite Here General Executive Board. Wilhelm was previously the President of Unite Here's Hospitality Division, and before that was the President of Here, one of the two unions that merged to form Unite Here in 2004. Taylor served as Staff Director of Unite Here Local 226 from 1990 to 2002 and Secretary-Treasurer since 2002, and as General VP of Unite Here since 2009.

UNITE HERE Launches App to Help Socially Conscious Travelers Find Union Hotels

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.
