Boston Local 26 striker, Lina Brito, was one of several strikers featured in our report on how the “Green Choice” program needs to get fixed.
When you select a Green Choice/Your Choice program in a @Marriott hotel, housekeepers don't get any extra time to clean dirtier rooms, and their hours get cut. Say NO to Green Choice Programs. #MakeABetterChoice https://t.co/7a3bysmHVd pic.twitter.com/Pv42rRgzot

Green Choice makes our jobs harder, and we’re fighting to fix it. We launched a petition to demand Marriott changes the program so that it doesn’t hurt housekeepers. More and more customers are realizing they are being tricked.
I’m platinum @Marriott Each time I stay more than one night they offer points in exchange for “Green Choice”.

Being a housekeeper for @Marriott is hard, but Marriott’s “Green” Choice program makes it harder. Click here to tell the Marriott Board of Directors to fix it now: https://t.co/QvZ7n8iAFE #MarriottStrike #1job #MarriottTRAVELER pic.twitter.com/dDVRTFuV3t

We continue to get messages from union members around the world. Here’s a video message from in Italy.
“My name is Maddalena, and I work for the European hotel workers union. I support you because the oppression that hotel workers experience in the U.S. is shared by hotel workers the whole world over. I know you’ll win! Solidarity!”
In Argentina, our “compañeros” (friends) from UTGHRA also gave some support.
“It’s imperative for the brand and the workers in conflict to arrive at a good outcome. From Argentina, Buenos Aires, the Sheraton Hotel sends you a lot of strength, compañeros, and truly that the issue that you’re having today gets resolved through dialogue and social peace.”
!Sí Se Puede! Yes We Can!
