The VSTA urges the Pacific Gateway Hotel to guarantee a right of return to all workers laid off during the COVID-19 pandemic once business returns. The economic impact of COVID-19 on hotel workers, particularly women, has been devastating. Workers who have cleaned rooms, cooked meals, and served guests for decades deserve to be treated fairly during these difficult times. Instead, the Pacific Gateway Hotel has been treating them like they’re disposable. They have permanently laid off dozens of workers and have stated plans to eliminate much of the workforce. This behavior can not be tolerated in 21st century British Columbia. Because of this, we stand in solidarity with these women until their right to return is guaranteed.
