Local 5 Endorses Maile

Hotel Employees & Restaurant Employees, Local 5, AFL-CIO, endorses Rep. Maile Shimabukuro.

Local 5 has a rich and storied history. Since its beginnings in 1937, Local 5 has worked to improve the quality of life for Hawaii’s hotel workers. It is an impressive record dating back to 1940 when the Moana Surfrider and the Royal Hawaiian Hotel became the first union hotels in Hawaii.

Today, the Hotel Employees & Restaurant Employees, Local 5, AFL-CIO, is one of the largest and strongest unions in Hawaii. It has brought decent wages, good working conditions, generous benefits, and a high degree of job security and self-respect to its members, who number in excess of 10,000.
[Note: Local 5 also endorsed Maile in 2008.]
