Worldwide Campaign for Dignity and Safe Work in Housekeeping

The International Union of Foodworkers (IUF) is launching a global campaign for dignity and decency for workers employed in hotel housekeeping departments. The IUF which has 390 affiliated unions in 122 countries (including Unite the Union) is calling on the International Labour Organisation and the UN World Tourism Organisation to respond to the degredation of housekeeping staff with policies that can bring about a change to the industy and give staff the rights they need for their unions to negotiate effectively with their staff. The campaign will be entitled 'Make Up My Workplace' and Hotel Workers Branch will be playing an active role. Keep up with IUF campaigns here.
