It`s time to stand up and protect what`s important to all of us. We all encourage UNITE HERE! 75 local members to stay strong and united. Together, we can promote safer jobs, stronger collective agreements and fair and fair wages for all workers. WHY: Indebted hotel owners have spent tens of billions of dollars in available funds to retain workers under Canada`s emergency wage subsidy program, but they may soon have access to reduced-rate loans, fully guaranteed by the federal government under HASCAP.

More than a trio of our members participated in the poll, the highest turnout in the history of our city. Our new leadership was elected with 83% of the vote. The election marks the passage of our local Treuhandschaft, as we welcome a new group of diverse local leaders. This conflict has had such a debilitating effect on our local people that last spring we overwhelmingly called on our International Union to intervene with a trust. With the Treuhandschaft, we are ready to move forward and focus on fighting for the best possible standard for hotel employees in Toronto. On March 29, 2019, employees of UNITE HERE Local 75 elected a new and diverse steering committee that marked the passage of a 14-month Aboriginal trust and the conclusion of an unsuccessful descent campaign by another union.
