On June 27, IUF members at Marriott hotels around the world demonstrated in support of the call for concrete action by the world’s largest hotel group to protect workers from the endemic sexual harassment which afflicts hospitality workers.
In Indonesia, Maldives, Philippines, Samoa and Thailand unions organized meetings and demonstrations in support of the demand for the hotel giant to negotiate a global agreement on concrete measures to protect workers. In North America, thousands of Marriott workers led by UNITE HERE joined together in a collective day of action to demand safer working conditions, protections against sexual harassment, and a voice on the job. UNITE HERE rallied members and workers from non-union hotels around the slogan ‘One job should be enough!’ for workers to live in the cities where they work, support a family, and retire with dignity.
Further union actions are planned in the days and weeks ahead.
