Baltimore Marriott Waterfront workers walk out to demand better wages

November 16, 2022

A crowd of unionized Baltimore Marriott Waterfront hotel workers participated in a work stoppage on Tuesday, taking to the sidewalks to demand higher wages they say are in line with other hotel providers. At approximately 12 p.m., a couple dozen workers at the Harbor East hotel participated in the roughly hour-long work stoppage, advocating for pay increases they say will keep up with the increased cost of living. The walkout was part of an effort by Unite Here Local 7, the union behind the workers, to address what it says has been an impasse at the bargaining table.
