(KHON 2) – By Web Staff. HONOLULU (KHON2) – UNITE HERE Local 5 members who work at Waikoloa Beach Marriott voted overwhelmingly yesterday to ratify a union contract that covers over 250 workers.
The Union filed a grievance on behalf of the engineering department at Sheraton Maui because the company used a subcontracted painting company for projects our Local 5 engineers have done in the past. We won the case and the workers got a total of $26,471 in backpay.
Jerson Gonzales has been a cook at Sheraton Maui for 7 years. He applied for a lead cook position and was passed up for someone with much less seniority. The Union filed a grievance on behalf of Jerson and we won his case. Jerson is now working as lead cook.
