Hotel workers, members of UNITE HERE Local 25, protested at the Washington Hilton earlier this week “to let guests know that the hotel has cut automatic daily housekeeping, which has been devastating for workers.” The Hilton has cut automatic daily room cleaning, which is costing housekeepers hours and pay. “Please ask the front desk for your room to be cleaned daily to save jobs and get the services you paid for!” the union urges.
The Montgomery County Council last week unanimously enacted legislation expanding Montgomery County’s prevailing wage requirements. The legislation “ensures more workers have the opportunity to earn a family-supporting wage in Montgomery County and continue contributing to the County by working on projects that benefit all residents,” said Baltimore-D.C. Metro Building and Construction Trades Council (BDCBT) President Stephen Courtien. “This legislation will incentivize good jobs, strong apprenticeship training, and help build a thriving regional economy,” Executive Vice President of the Mechanical Contractors Association of Metropolitan Washington Thomas Bello said. “We appreciate the opportunity to work with Councilmembers Tom Hucker and Will Jawando and thank the entire Council for voting to pass this important legislation.” Read more here.
NOTE: Tune in to the WPFW Your Rights At Work radio show tomorrow at 1p to hear BDCBT President Stephen Courtien discuss this issue.
