Support Marriott Housekeepers
Marriott housekeepers have reached out requesting that we and our Conference attendees join their campaign to reject Marriott’s Green Choice program. This program is an example of greenwashing, that asks hotel guests to decline housekeeping to allow management to cut hours and lay off housekeepers due to lowered demand. NPH chose the San Francisco Marriott Marquis as the venue for our conference because we support our labor allies and believe in shared, core values including social and economic justice and the fight for dignity for workers in the workplace. Working with Unite HERE!, we have signed the petition insisting that Marriott not offer the Green Choice program and we are helping to spread the word about rejecting Marriott’s Green Choice program.
