We are the union of hotel, restaurant and casino workers in the Washington D.C. metro region.
7,500 strong, our members are the hard-working people who provide warm hospitality to the guests who visit the greater Washington D.C. area.
Through the power of the union, members are able to ensure that they are compensated fairly for their work and that the establishments where they work have a safe, fair, and respectful working environment.
If you work in a hotel in the Washington D.C. area, you can have the backing and bargaining power of our great union. The hotel workers represented by Local 25 enjoy great pay and benefits, job security, and the right to have a say over their conditions at work.
Every hotel worker in D.C, Virginia and Maryland deserves to have the same rights we have. Organizing your hotel will make your family’s life better, and it will also make all of us stronger.
By choosing to stay in a union hotel, you show respect to the workers who have fought to make traditionally low-wage jobs into good, family-sustaining, middle class jobs. Creating sustainable jobs changes the lives of the workers for the better, and supports the local economy.
If you want to further the cause of social justice, and if you believe that doing so requires changing the distribution of power in society, then you should consider devoting your energy and talents to rebuilding the American labor movement.
