We kicked off negotiations with Marriott and Kyo-ya yesterday. Negotiations will continue today. On Monday and Tuesday, leaders from each of the locals will be bargaining with Marriott. Let’s keep the lines strong and stay focused on the issues that are most important to us—job security and making one job enough to live in Hawaii.
More community and political support:
- Senator Mazie Hirono visited our picket lines to show her support. She shared with us that her immigrant mother worked 2 jobs, so she supports our One Job Should Be Enough campaign.
- Sierra Club and Academic Labor United joined our picket lines.
- Guests, community supporters, and labor unions continue to donate to our strike fund!
Spreading our message:
We are continuing to expand picketing to the Ritz Carlton Waikiki, HiEmployment, and PWC. We also leafleted at the airport to inform arriving visitors about our strike.
