Justice For Workers

Hotel workers have a 40 percent higher injury rate than other service workers, and out of all hotel workers, housekeepers get hurt most often.

“A man dies when he refuses to stand up for that which is right. A man dies when he refuses to stand up for justice. A man dies when he refuses to take a stand for that which is true.”

MARTIN lUTHER king, jr

Housekeepers are under pressure to clean too many rooms in too short a time, and then to leave them pristine. This means they don’t take breaks and work off the clock to meet their quotas. Hotel workers also regularly face sexual harassment from guests and colleagues, and when they report it, hotel companies ignore them.

CLUE has been active for decades in unionizing campaigns for hotel workers across Southern California, including in Santa Monica, downtown Los Angeles, Anaheim, and Long Beach, among others. We take part in picket lines, join delegations that meet with management, share workers’ stories from the pulpits of our churches, and conduct dramatic actions to highlight the sacrifices workers and immigrants make to survive in their jobs.

During the worst of the COVID pandemic, our sisters and brothers who work in the grocery chains kept the shelves stocked, worked as cashiers, and staffed the deli and meat counters. In short, they helped us get our food. They did this at real risk to their own health. Some of them died.
