Victory! After months of bargaining, the Union and Waikiki Resort Hotel reached a tentative agreement on a new contract, replacing the CBA that expired almost 4 years ago. This win shows the impact of the standard we set on our 51-day strike back in 2018—better wages and benefits, job security, safer workplaces, and to make ONE JOB enough to live in Hawaii.
This victory sets the pattern for our remaining contract fights with the small properties that are expired and not yet settled (i.e., Queen Kapiolani Hotel, Ramada Plaza, Royal Kona Resort, and others). With our solidarity and unity, Local 5 is showing our employers that we’re not afraid to fight! Let’s continue gaining the momentum for our 2022 campaigns and raise the standard even higher for the working people of Hawaii!
