Team Clean workers at Kahala Hotel win back pay after being underpaid since last year

The Team Clean workers at the Kahala Hotel had been underpaid since returning to work last year. With the help of their shop steward Jasmine Marbou, they got the company to back pay workers the money they were owed, which was an increase of $3.19 more per hour.
Jasmine Marbou said, “It means that our union really does work for us workers. The company didn’t all of a sudden have a change of heart and say, ‘Here you go: here’s the money that we were supposed to give you, but we forgot to.'”
She shook her head, “No, it’s workers getting together and saying this is not right, and we need to let our union know what’s going on in our workplace. We as workers need to speak up for ourselves, for our coworkers in all departments, and that’s how we get things done. That’s how we get results.”
