A strike could be in store for another one of Waikiki's major hotels
Local 5 represents about 2,000 workers -- everything from housekeepers to bellmen, to food & beverage -- and says 'one job should be enough.'
HONOLULU - UNITE HERE! Local 5 hotel workers will vote on whether to authorize a strike at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.
Local 5 represents about 2,000 workers -- everything from housekeepers to bellmen, to food & beverage. Their argument is that "one job should be enough."
The union says Hilton was recently named the "world's number one company to work for," but after weeks of negotiations, the union claims key issues like sub-contracting, job elimination, better pay and workplace safety were not addressed.
The last major strike in Waikiki was just last fall when workers at the Marriott-run hotels went on strike for almost two months.
