April Branch Meeting

UNION HOTEL WORKERS ARE INVITED
to the Monday April 7th Hotel Workers branch meeting
from 5pm to 6.30pm
at Unite Head Office, 128, Theobalds Rd, London WC1X 8TN

THE MEETING IS ABOUT ONE THING:

"A Tale Of Two Cities"

The greatest problem in the London Hotel Industry is low wages and increased workloads. We will compare London Hotel Workers with New York Hotel Workers. The reason we will do this is that your employer, the Hiltons and Marriotts and Holiday Inns and all the rest pay great wages and conditions in New York and pay poverty wages in London.

Fair Pay Fortnight – Britain needs a pay rise

Over £6,000 awarded to Dismissed Member with only 2 Months Service

A Unite Hospitality sector member who had only worked for her employer for 2 months has been awarded £6,926.43 in compensenation following legal representation by union solictors in an Employment Tribunal. The member began working in her employer's restaurant on May 1st last year. On July 1st she submitted a written complaint to her employer because the wages she was recieving were considerably less than those specified in her job offer. On reading the letter her employer dismissed her with immediate effect.

Equality and Human Rights Submission

Submissions have been made on behalf of the Hotel Workers Branch to the UK Equality and Human Rights Commission investigation into workers rights in the cleaning sector. Our submission highlights the regular abuse by agencies and sub-contractors of workers right in many hotel housekeeping departments in hotels across London.
