Marriott Strike: Day 41 bulletin

Negotiations update:

We moved significantly in bargaining, thanks to the strength and unity we’ve shown on the picket lines. But the negotiations committee agreed that management’s proposal still wasn’t enough to preserve our benefits and give us real wage raises. But the company didn’t wish to keep going. They proposed to come back to the bargaining table on Monday, November 26.

This Thanksgiving week, we need to show them that we’re united. We need to show them the camaraderie and strength we’ve built together over the past 40 days. While the hotels cancelled their Thanksgiving dinners, we will be celebrating Thanksgiving together as one ohana.

They’re testing us. We’re going to pass this test. Let’s make our picket lines stronger than ever!
