In our Asia/Pacific region the “safe hotels” campaign on the right to a safe workplace and the safe re-opening of hotels will continue. The education and organizing work around safe hotels began in April 2020 and culminated in a week of action in 9 countries in the lead-up to World Tourism Day on September 27, 2020. These activities will continue until January 2021.

safe work + secure jobs + union rights = safe hotels
