UNITE HERE Local 5 Leads Proactive Approach with Industry to Protect Jobs and Healthcare Coverage

Local 5 represents over 12,000 hospitality, healthcare, and food service workers in Hawai’i. We have begun bargaining with the employers to deal the many layoffs of workers and to address measures to protect the health of workers and guests. The Union has been communicating to our Employers that worker safety is equally as important as guest safety, as is maintaining health care benefits for our members during this health crisis.
