Workers at the Stamford Hilton Hotel walked off the job Thursday March 8

Workers at the Stamford Hilton Hotel walked off the job Thursday March 8 to show their determination to get a good contract. They crowded the main hotel entry way for nearly 2 hours chanting, “No contract, No Peace.” Prominent on the line were housekeepers who had already proclaimed their solidarity with the women expected to march in other countries around the globe on International Women’s Day. 

International Women’s Strike Connecticut joined the picket line in solidarity. The new group, inspired by The IWS US Platform, made the clear connection between the Stamford union fight and millions of women marching in the streets on International Women’s Day demanding better wages, working conditions, an end to sexual abuse, immigrant rights, an end to racism, healthcare, and jobs.
