UNITE HERE! Local 75 Endorses Ana Bailao for Mayor of Toronto

As the largest hospitality union representing over 7000 hotel, food service, and gaming workers in Toronto, UNITE HERE Local 75 is proud to endorse Ana Bailao for Mayor of Toronto.

Ana has always supported our efforts to build good jobs in the hospitality industry – jobs that include fair wages, decent benefits, workload protection, job security, and dignity at work.

Amongst other initiatives, given the number of redevelopment proposals at hotels across the city, she pushed for a study to assess the impacts of diminishing hotel room supply in relation to the loss of good jobs and the workforce. She also worked with us to develop strong and fair regulations for short-term rentals like Airbnb to protect Toronto’s rental housing market and fight against unregulated ghost hotels which add to the pressure to convert hotels to condos.

Ana shares our vision to continue to raise the standard of living for hospitality workers by supporting responsible development which can provide economic stability with jobs one can raise a family on, and jobs one can build a community around.
