Will Four Points by Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel
continue to target Chinese workers
who stand up for their rights?
The workers at the Four Points by Sheraton Vancouver Airport in Richmond organized a union in February 2018 after a new owner acquired the hotel.
Since then, the owner has targeted long-term staff who are predominantly members of the Chinese community in Richmond and who supported the union.
UNITE HERE Local 40 has filed a complaint with the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal against the hotel for attempting to diminish union support by discriminating against Chinese staff involved in organizing and supporting a union.
A year ago, 80% of the workers at the Four Points in Richmond were Chinese. Today, that percentage has fallen to approximately 40% Chinese.
The Four Points by Sheraton Vancouver Airport is located in the heart of Richmond’s ‘Golden Village’ neighbourhood, serving many Chinese customers including Chinese tour groups. The workers, many of whom are from the community, are fighting for stable and fair employment. Join us in asking the owner to stop targeting workers and respect their rights to improve working conditions.
