Wyndham Hotel Workers Vote to Strike, a Growing Trend During ‘Striketober’

Kimberly Paynter
Restaurant hotel workers and Unite Here representatives chanted, “If we don’t get it, shut it down,” at a vote of union members to authorize a strike outside the Wyndham Hotel in Philadelphia on October 28, 2021.
