New FairHotel helps you find Union hotels

WASHINGTON, D.C. (June 29, 2022) — UNITE HERE, the union that represents 300,000 working people across Canada and the United States in the hotel, gaming, food service and other industries, this week announced the launching of the redesigned FairHotel, the site that helps travelers pick hotels that support working people. FairHotel will make it easier for the many people who are fired up about all the new organizing happening to book a union hotel.

If used before booking, the new site helps guests understand the status of labor disputes at properties, avoid disruptions to their trips or meetings, and use their consumer power to support good hospitality jobs that are enough to raise a family on.

Using FairHotel, groups and meeting planners can search by location, hotel brand, number of rooms, and size of ballroom space, in addition to the status of labor disputes including picket lines and strikes. FairHotel also provides language to help meeting planners protect a group event, ensure clean rooms, and allow groups to relocate if necessary.

Please check out FairHotel, use it when arranging your organization’s events or personal travel, and share with it your friends and family on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

In Washington and Oregon, UNITE HERE Local 8 represents about 5,000 hospitality industry workers in hotels, restaurants, food service, and airport concessions. They include room cleaners, cooks, bartenders, bellmen, food and beverage servers, bussers, and dishwashers. Learn more at
