Workers like Jackson are hoping to get better wages, less work, and job security. It is just one of the few demands the Culinary Union wants in new contracts.

Jackson told 8 News Now that she cleans 13 check-out rooms a day, without getting a lunch break.

“Your back hurts, your legs hurt, you are always sore, you don’t feel like doing anything,” she said.

The legislature eliminated the law requiring daily room cleanings, which were put in place during the pandemic.

Rooms are now cleaned when guests depart, meaning there does not need to be enough staff to clean the rooms daily.

“That means our workers will get laid off,” Ted Pappageorge the secretary-treasurer of the union said.
