A: If your employer has signed the coronavirus safety protocol, you have the right to use one of your days off, medical or personal leave and paid leave that remains during the calendar year, for some reason related to the coronavirus crisis, for a paid break, even if you do not feel safe to get to work and return to work. You can also take a protected unpaid break. Here is a list of hotels that have signed the protocol. The restaurant industry has had its fights, even without the HTC contract. A: The loss of jobs is the loss of health care. During this crisis, for example, EU leaders began negotiating extensive health care and finally took a case to an arbitration tribunal after the IWA`s decision on severance pay. On March 19, 2020, the arbitrator ruled that HTC-represented workers in stores covered by the IWA contract had an additional 4 months of health care when they were laid off because of coronavirus. On 14 August 2020, the EU reached an agreement to extend for an additional month workers in the tariff unit working in IWA stores. For example, if you work in an IWA store and have worked in March 2020, you are covered until September 30, 2020.

The agreement achieves three crucial objectives: Article 59 of the IWA, successor and beneficiary of the transfer, stipulates that if the property remains operated as a hotel under the new owner or the management company, employees retain their positions, union representation, seniority, recall rights, working conditions, remuneration and benefits. In other words, the only significant change is who will sign your paycheck at the end of the week. Less than a month later, the property of 12 non-union hotels – members of the same family belonging to the Chelsea Four Points – lodged a complaint in response to the Union`s assertion to assume THE rights of the Union under the IWA to organise work in its non-union hotels. In Brooklyn Downtown Hotel LLC v. N.Y. Hotel – Motel Trades Council, AFL-CIO, No. 14-cv-6067 (E.D.N.Y.) (presented on October 16, 2014; Amended complaint filed on November 7, 2014), the complainants claim that the Union is using the Chelsea Grand decision as a springboard to organise the 12 non-union hotels within the IWA – claiming that, because Chelsea Grand was found a joint employer with the IWA signatory, all other hotels owned by Chelsea Grand – or any subsidiary – would also be linked to the IWA.
