RALLY AT THE PK: We rallied in front of the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani, joined by several other unions who stand with us, including HSTA (Hawaii State Teachers Association), APWU (American Postal Workers Union), and IAM (International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers). Local 5 members are leading the labor movement in Hawaii, and we will continue to go on strong on the strike line. One day longer, one day stronger!
PRIDE PARADE: Strikers, other Local 5 members, and community supporters marched in the Pride Parade chanting loud and proud that one job should be enough to live in Hawaii!
RALLY AT SHERATON MAUI: Strikers rallied on the beach at Sheraton Maui and disrupted the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival. Two tickets to the event cost $590. Meanwhile, Local 5 members are working multiple jobs to make ends meet.
GUESTS SUPPORT US: Guests have been coming to our picket lines every single day to show their support. Longtime Royal Hawaiian guest Sue Leonard brought pizza to the line to support and show her appreciation of us: “It’s not the Royal I know and love without you.”
