Marriott Strike – settled this week

Together, we won what we set out to achieve: life-changing raises and improvements to our working conditions in the best contracts we’ve ever seen. After 61 days on strike, I now go back to work without worrying how I’ll pay for my kids’ health care. I’ll be able to stop working a second job. I can spend time with my kids and take care of myself.

Marriott strike SF

Nearly 2,500 workers walked off their jobs Thursday morning from seven Marriott hotels in downtown San Francisco to demand higher wages, workplace safety and job security.
Picket lines formed outside the Courtyard by Marriott Downtown, the Marriott Marquis, the Marriott Union Square, the Palace Hotel, the St. Regis, the W and the Westin St. Francis, according to Unite Here Local 2, a union that represents 89 percent of the workers.
