The Hotel Georgia just served lockout notice to its employees!
The #1 hotel in Canada is threatening to lockout its five-star employees as early as tomorrow (Friday, August 23rd). This lockout threat is unprecedented at this hotel, and the workers’ union (UNITEHERE Local 40) feels this move is extremely anti-worker. This comes as more women are speaking out about sexual harassment and assault at the Hotel Georgia, and just one week after several women filed a human rights complaint against the Hotel Georgia.

The March will be from the Pinnacle Hotel to the Hotel Georgia on August 29th. Meet at 5:00 p.m. at the Pinnacle Hotel (1133 West Hastings, Vancouver).
