Join Boston hotel workers as they launch their 2018 hotel contract fight! Thousands of workers at more than 30 Boston area hotels are standing together to fight for their share of the billion dollar hotel industry.

UNITE HERE members in more than 40 other cities will join in this international day of action———————————-
Hospitality workers who serve guests in the $180 billion hospitality industry serve their country in the literal sense every day, whether it’s greeting guests, making hotel beds, delivering food to planes in 100° heat, or serving meals in the nation’s top universities and tech companies.

When unionized with UNITE HERE though, these workers also serve our country in a larger sense: by fighting for and winning fair union contracts that drive up wages for all workers in their community, union or not; by holding rich and powerful corporations accountable through pickets, boycotts, and strikes against exploitive employers; and by standing up to Trump and his political agenda to organize for racial and gender equity at work and beyond, for all immigrants, all races, and all religions.

On October 19th, tens of thousands of hospitality workers across the U.S. and Canada are joining together across 40 cities to take action.
