We are HMS Host Honolulu workers and are proud to be Local 5 members. The airport is seeing a record number of travelers since tourism reopened and we have been working hard to give them the best, safest experience possible. In our restaurant units, bartenders have been serving tables, which is a server’s job. Bartenders deserve to make an income safely without doing the job of two separate classifications. And servers who are waiting to be recalled deserve to get their jobs back.
We demand that the company:
- Reopen the bar;
- Install plexiglass separators at the bar to abide by CDC and State guidelines to keep workers and travelers safe;
- Meet with the Union and workers to adjust the floor plan in each dine-in restaurant unit to add another server and maintain 6-feet social distancing.
