Green program cutting hotel staff hours and increasing work load

Some Vancouver hotel workers rallied on Thursday against their employers’ green program saying it’s cutting down their hours.

They protested in front of the Westin Bayshore Hotel downtown.

The “Make a Green Choice” program, which was implemented earlier this summer, offers hotel guests a $5-voucher toward food and drinks if they forgo housekeeping services for the day.

The workers also said that when guests don’t have their rooms cleaned daily, it takes them “two to three times longer to clean.”
