Thousands In Hawaii Join Widespread US Hotel Strike

A massive strike against Marriott has expanded past the mainland United States to Hawaii.

Fox affiliate, KHON 2, reports:

“About 2,700 Marriott hotel workers on Oahu and Maui are on strike Monday morning.

The strike impacts five hotels operated by Marriott and owned by Kyo-ya which includes Sheraton Waikiki, The Royal Hawaiian, Westin Moana Surfrider, Sheraton Princess Kaiulani, and Sheraton Maui.

Workers will be picketing at all five hotels and are urging Hawaii residents, elected officials, political candidates, and tourists to support workers by not patronizing these hotels.

The strike comes as Marriott and Kyo-ya have failed to reach agreement on workers’ modest demand that One Job Should Be Enough, despite months of negotiations.

This includes key issues such as job security around technology and automation, workplace safety, and the need for Marriott and Kyo-ya to compensate workers so that one job can be enough for workers to support themselves.”
