Hotel Housekeepers around the world rising up for their rights
Hotel housekeepers around the world showed their determination to claim their rights in the course of the IUF 6th Global Week of Action held from October 21 to 27. Union members in over 74 cities in 23 countries held public actions, meetings with members, and training and awareness workshops to highlight their demands for better wages and working conditions and measures to improve workplace health and safety, including protection against sexual harassment.
Many unions emphasized the need for the leading global hospitality companies in the hospitality sector to negotiate with the IUF, echoing the call for Marriott, the world’s largest hotel company, to engage with the IUF on measures to combat sexual harassment at the workplace.
