“Our hotel is owned by one of Canada’s richest families, but they refuse to pay us fairly for the work we do. I’ve worked here for 31 years and even got injured on the job, but I still don’t earn a living wage.” - Ana Wong, Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel Room Attendant (pictured above)
Striking hotel workers in Richmond are making personal and financial sacrifices to fight for justice on the job. These include young professionals, parents and even grandparents that are on the picket line. They keep fighting ONE DAY LONGER for the secure jobs and fair pay all workers deserve! Their fight brings all working people one step closer to demanding respect in our industries.
Sheraton Vancouver Airport hotel workers stand united for living wages. Now in their 3RD MONTH of the strike, they continue to fight for fair pay from the hotel so they can support their families in Metro Vancouver. Radisson Blu Vancouver Airport hotel workers have been on strike for OVER 2 YEARS – the longest hotel strike in BC history! Radisson Blu Vancouver Airport workers continue to fight for job security and a fair contract. They are asking for the hotel to recall their coworkers terminated during the pandemic - many of them women, some who had worked at the hotel for over 30 years.
Please donate to support hotel workers on strike! Any amount helps our fight!
“Every time workers stand up and demand fair wages, demand respect, demand dignity…you’re doing it for every worker. Your fight is not just for you, your fight is for every worker.”
– NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh, addressing Sheraton YVR strikers
