This is a video about supporting unions and workers' rights. and After a long, long fight, workers at this hotel have finally won the right to organize a union:,110150/ Visit to hear stories from other hotel and restaurant workers. (We've since shut down the site but you can still view old posts and stories from hotel workers). Press Inquiries: FAQ: 1. Q: Why is your name bleeped out but you have your real name in your username? A: When we first uploaded it I bleeped my name out and didn't have my real name on anything related to the video. Once it began to get popular, I realized I could do more by attaching my name to it than by hiding from it (see my website/other videos/etc.) Youtube doesn't allow you to reupload videos so the name is bleeped out even though I used my real name online now. 2. Q: Didn't you screw yourself? Now you'll never have a job you idiot. A: No, I've gotten several jobs since making this video. In fact, the attention from this video and the things I've channeled it toward have created more opportunities than I ever had before. Video of Joey La Neve DeFrancesco quitting the Renaissance Providence Downtown Hotel Filmed by Jori Ketten, featuring the What Cheer? Brigade I want to give a little context for the many of you who don't know me: I worked in this hotel for 3.5 years. I worked while going to school full time to pay my tuition and living expenses. This was not a job I had for two weeks before quitting in a hissy-fit. The working conditions in the hotel are horrendous. In the kitchen, workers are regularly forced to work 10, 11, 14, 16 hour shifts that begin at 5:30AM and last well into the night. Housekeepers are reprimanded if they fail to clean 16 rooms or more in a 9 hour shift. Anyone who speaks up—especially anyone who is openly pro-union—is disciplined or fired. Managers, like Jared, scream down employees daily. I worked extremely hard to change the conditions in the hotel. My co-workers and I regularly organized ourselves to push back against management and demand respect. I was also one of many workers who led the fight to organize a formal union at the hotel. For legal reasons I must mention that this specific action was an individual decision and had nothing to do with the union. The hotel has yet to recognize our union, and they continue a vicious union-busting campaign. They punish and fire pro-union workers, spread lies in captive-audience meetings, and generally attempt to scare the workers out of joining the union. Still, through just being organized and threatening to form a union, we've won countless victories, including raises, new uniforms, lower housekeeper room quotas, etc. This video a bit of performance art highlighting the struggle at the Renaissance Providence Hotel and hotels throughout the country. © Copyright 2011 Joey La Neve DeFrancesco All rights reserved Contact: best job quit. job quitting. quits job marching band. musical quit.
