We Are Essential, Not Expendable

Our President Anand Singh send the Hotel Industry a set of proposals that should guide the Hotel’s reopening.
The Union’s proposals are all about bringing workers back to work in a safe environment.
We’re demanding the highest levels of health and safety including:
  • Training and staffing
  • PPE and cleaning equipment
  • Thorough disinfecting prior to reopening for all areas of the hotels
  • Social distancing for workers and guests
  • Daily room cleaning
  • Strong workload protections
  • Health benefits
  • COVID 19 testing
The industry should understand that we will not endorse a reopening that ignores our demands for job security, health and safety.
We won’t be another Las Vegas, NV where the bosses reopened the strip as COVID 19 cases rise.
