Support Hospitality Workers

Hotel workers, like all other workers, have the right to earn a living wage, receive fair benefits, and form a union if they choose. But in hotels across the country, thousands of housekeepers struggle to survive on poverty wages, and suffer injuries at higher rates than others in the service industry.

In July 2013, UNITE HERE and Hyatt reached a national agreement that provides a process for workers to join a union. The agreement ended a yearlong global boycott, and is considered a step towards justice for Hyatt workers. The agreement, however, does not address issues at a number of Hyatt properties.

As people of faith, we are committed to promoting and preserving the rights of hotel workers. As consumers, we have an opportunity to stand with workers and highlight our preference for fair treatment for hospitality workers.

We encourage faith communities to only patronize facilities and venues that recognize its employees’ rights.
