Housekeepers and their unions have demonstrated once again their determination to win improved working conditions through the 4th Global Week of Action held from October 9-15.


Union members from all continents have taken advantage of this week to reinforce and explain the objectives of the campaign for safe and dignified jobs in a sector of permanent business growth but which too often profits from impoverished working conditions.

Rallies, protests, workplace meetings and workshops have highlighted the problems of outsourcing, sexual harassment, unrealistic room quotas, the lack of collective bargaining and the need for preventive occupational health programs.

More details on the Global Week of Action will be reported on this webpage as further information is collected.
