Marriott Workers Just Ended the Largest Hotel Strike in US History
Posted On: Dec 06, 2018
Dec. 6, 2018 | STRIKES | Thousands of Marriott workers [went] back to work Wednesday after ending the largest hotel strike in US history. About 2,500 striking hotel workers in San Francisco ratified a new contract with the hotel chain on Monday after months of tense negotiations, according to their labor union Unite Here. It was the final deal reached during a two-month strike that spread to 23 Marriott hotels in eight cities… The new contracts end months of loud, heated protests outside some of America’s most iconic Marriott-owned hotels. Nearly 8,000 housekeepers, bartenders, and other service workers walked off the job at two dozen hotels in Detroit, Boston, San Diego, San Jose, Oakland, San Francisco, Maui, and Oahu, according to Unite Here, which represents more than 20,000 Marriott workers in the United States and Canada… Vox
