Holiday Inn LAX Fires Outspoken Workers, Prompts Strike

The workers at the Holiday Inn LAX are blowing the whistle on their employer. Holiday Inn LAX employees told Fox 11 News on October 3rd that the hotel sometimes went without laundry detergent to wash sheets and towels. Workers would use only hot water when that happened. Workers also reported sometimes having no soap to wash cocktail glasses in the bar. Housekeepers would run out of products to clean bathrooms. Some of them would purchase their own cleaning supplies. Apparently, it took a Fox News report to get these problems corrected.

On October 4, employees filed a class action lawsuit claiming they regularly weren’t paid for overtime, worked through many lunch breaks, aren’t paid the wages required by law, and have spent their own money on supplies they need to do their job. To top things off, the Hotel fired two outspoken union supporters after employees started complaining, prompting a one day strike! While the Hotel has backed off one firing, the other worker is still fighting for his job. Workers should be able to unionize without fear or intimidation.

Please take two minutes to send a message to the hotel’s investors: tell them to help clean up the mess at the Holiday Inn LAX!
