Pride at Work Supports Xenia Workers
A Resolution to Demand a Fair Process for Xenia Hotel Workers to Organize

WHEREAS, Xenia owns dozens of hotels nationwide, and;

WHEREAS, housekeepers and other workers at Xenia-owned hotels suffer strenuous workloads, low wages, unaffordable healthcare, and other indignities on the job, and,

WHEREAS, workers at Xenia-owned hotels in Chicago, Honolulu, Santa Clara, and Garden Grove have taken bold steps to end mistreatment, demanding a fair process to unionize, and;

WHEREAS, LGBTQ travelers’ estimated economic impact is over $100 billion per year in the U.S. alone, and;

WHEREAS, Pride at Work has consistently supported the efforts of hotel workers to organize for a fairer, safer, and more respectful workplace;

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that Pride at Work calls on Xenia Hotels to honor these workers’ demand for a fair process to organize. Without such a process, Pride at Work is prepared to endorse economic actions when called upon.
