Through UNITE HEREs Hotel Workers Rising campaign, HEI workers, backed by students from campuses across the country, are seeking respect Its time for our community to find out whats going on in HEI hotels. and better livelihoods for themselves and their families. HEI workers at the Sheraton Crystal City have joined workers at HEIs Le Meridien in San Francisco and HEIs Hilton in Long Beach, CA in their call for a fair process for deciding whether to form a union, without management interference. In each hotel where workers have gone public, HEI has committed a series of suspicious layoffs and disciplines of Union activists.
