Join us May 25 to mark 2 YEARS ON STRIKE!
– Circulated on behalf of Unite Here Local 40 –
Join our rally THIS THURSDAY May 25th as we mark 2 YEARS ON STRIKE!
This is the longest hotel strike in B.C. history!
Location: 3500 Cessna Drive, Richmond
Show your support for the striking hotel workers as they continue to fight to save their jobs & for a fair contract!
What’s the situation at Pacific Gateway Hotel? (now Radisson Blu)
The hotel used COVID-19 as an excuse to terminate 143 of their long-term staff – many of them women of colour, some who had worked at the hotel for over 40 years. In response Pacific Gateway workers went on STRIKE!
The hotel is rebranding with a new name – Radisson Blu Vancouver Airport. Don’t be fooled – this is the same owner who terminated 70% of the staff. The BC Federation of Labour and the Canadian Labour Congress have issued a boycott of the hotel until it agrees to rehire their workers and agrees to a fair contract.
See you there! UNITE HERE Local 40
