Day four of Local 5 strike: Some saying they just want to get back to work
2,700 Marriott workers have been protesting on O'ahu and Maui for four days, some are saying they are ready to get back to doing what they do best -- helping guests.
HONOLULU - More than 2,700 Marriott Hotel workers on O'ahu and Maui are still on strike.
Picketers were out Wednesday night on Kaiulani Street in front of the Sheraton Princess Kaiulani Hotel.
Employees first walked off the job in order to get more pay and better job security, but some say they want to get back to work, not just for themselves, but for their guests too.
"Actually, we just want to get back to work. The guests are actually checking out. I just spoke to a guest, he checked out of the Princess Kaiulani and he went to the Hyatt, and I asked him what was he paying here, which is about $200, and he said hes paying $400 over there. We just want to get back to work doing what we do best, which is taking care of the guests."
KITV4 has heard labor negotiations are ongoing.
