During the month of May, employees at two hotels voted in favour of joining our Union bringing a total of 55 new members to the Local 175 family.

Approximately 30 members at the Homewood Suites in St. Jacobs, and 25 members at the Best Western in Kitchener, are now part of Local 175.

The two hotels have the same owner and employees at both locations were seeking better working conditions including protection from harassment, improvements to wages, and more respect and dignity on the job.
