Assemblywoman to join hotel workers quilt tour in The City

The assemblywoman from San Francisco will be among the leaders joining nearly 350 hotel workers and housekeepers Wednesday bringing a “Hope Quilt” to The City on the second leg of a national “Hope for Housekeepers” tour.

The group was founded by Hyatt housekeepers and advocates for women working in the hotel industry. The tour will continue to Chicago to bring awareness to the working conditions of hotel workers.

It comes as hotel workers in The City have been negotiating new contracts with major hotel chains, Hyatt, Hilton and Starwood, on behalf of around 9,000 employees.
