As NFL season kicks off, contract negotiations continue at Omni Providence Hotel

When the Houston Texans come to town to play the New England Patriots, as they are today, they stay in nice hotels.

As the NFL season kicks off, Unite Here! Local 26 members who work as hotel housekeepers, front desk reception, bellmen, cooks and dishwashers picketed to remind people that the contract for the 200 employees at the Omni Providence Hotel expired on January 31, 2018. Workers have been without a contract for seven months. They are looking for fair pay, safe workloads and affordable health care.

Workers picketed in front of the Omni Providence Hotel Saturday evening with signs that read “UNITE HERE” and “One Job Should Be Enough” as they call on Omni to make a deal.
