Four major hotels in downtown Vancouver–the Hyatt, Four Seasons, Westin Bayshore & Pinnacle hotels – have now agreed to new safety measures to protect their staff from sexual harassment faced on the job. These hotels are the first hotels in Vancouver to agree to:
1. Panic Buttons – Providing staff with panic button security devices.
2. Guest Ban – Banning guests that have sexually harassed an employee.
3. Whistleblower Protection – No retaliation against employees who come forward.
These protections are a new standard in the hospitality industry; UNITE HERE Local 40 will continue to push for these measures to be implemented across hotels in B.C.
The Hotel Georgia has not agreed to this new standard of protection against sexual harassment.
