A Message from Union President Peter Ward

April 6, 2020 7:00 PM

"What should the union do at a time like this? And it seems as a person and the leader of the union, it’s really quite simple. One, we have to protect our membership, protect them by providing them with healthcare and security when they're not at work and create a better environment for them when they are at work during this crisis. Second thing, is to preserve the union as an institution. Despite the fact that we are going to go through an enormous economic upheaval and that the future of our industry is, to some degree, uncertain, our job is to preserve the institution so that it continues to protect hotel workers and provide that unique bubble that Hotel Trades Council members live in as employees of hotels. And then finally, contribute. Contribute to the community, contribute to solutions, contribute to things that make the problem better instead of worse.”
