During our last negotiation session, we all stood up for housekeeping—bell department, front desk, cooks, stewarding, servers, everybody. Before this contract fight, a lot of us didn’t realize how hard the rooms are for them. Now we know how much they are suffering and it’s not okay.
We are behind the housekeepers 100%. I respect them so much. This fight has shown me how important it is for all of us to stick together—we don’t all have the same issues, but to get what each of us needs, we actually need each other.
“We support our housekeepers, not because it holds any benefit to us, but because it’s what they deserve. It’s what is right and just. I’m filled with a sense of pride by the depth of this support from employees from every department.” — Edward Hampton. PK hotel maintenance
