IBEW 993 Business Manager & Financial Secretary and Mollie Routledge pose with our cheque to help striking UNITE HERE Local 40 members.

Supporting members of UNITE HERE Local 40 in their strike efforts is crucial for several reasons. Firstly, these workers are often at the forefront of advocating for fair labor practices and improved working conditions in the hospitality industry. By standing in solidarity with them during strikes, supporters send a powerful message to employers that the broader community values the well-being and rights of workers. The success of such strikes can lead to tangible improvements in wages, benefits, and workplace conditions, not only benefiting the union members directly involved but setting a precedent for positive change across the industry.

These strikes are not just about individual grievances but represent a collective struggle against systemic issues such as income inequality and inadequate workplace protections. By rallying behind these workers, supporters help amplify their voices, fostering a sense of empowerment and encouraging a more equitable distribution of resources. Ultimately, backing the members of UNITE HERE Local 40 in their strikes is an investment in creating a fairer and more just society, where workers have the power to shape their working conditions and build a better future for themselves and future generations.
