Nine days after voting overwhelmingly to authorize a boycott of their hotel, Local 5 members working at the Hyatt Regency Waikiki declared the property under boycott as of June 17, 2011.
We are asking you not to patronize the Hyatt Regency Waikiki.
Hyatt Corporation demands that we accept the loss of good jobs in Hawaii. Their plan is to export our jobs overseas. On top of that, Hyatt refuses to ensure that workers in the jobs it has already subcontracted are paid the same as Hyatt workers, which other major hotels in Waikiki have been doing for years.
We know that our futures depend on workers sticking together and backing each other up.
We refuse to agree to a contract that means abandoning our co-workers.
This Hyatt joins 17 other Hyatts across the country under boycott.
Please: respect our wishes and DO NOT STAY AT THE HYATT REGENCY WAIKIKI or any other boycotted Hyatt.
