Throughout the US and Canada, hotel workers have been organizing to demand respect and better treatment. In an industry that delivers high luxury to its guests, workers struggle to make ends meet. They work long hours performing jobs that tax their health, even while many are unable to afford health plans offered to them. And when they organize collectively, workers are often confronted with sophisticated campaigns of coercion and litigation, designed to deter them from having a say in the decisions that affect them.

Workers at one company in particular – HEI Hotels & Resorts – are standing up right now to demand the respect they deserve. They have called on their employer to adopt a fair processthat allows them to decide whether to have a union in an environment free of these sorts of anti-worker tactics. Thus far, HEI has denied their requests.
