Employer Partners


The following employer partners have a long history of supporting incumbent worker training as part of a collaborative bargaining agreement with UNITE HERE Local 26, the hospitality workers union. By working with these high-road employers, BEST ensures that our graduates are placed in jobs that provide dignity, family-sustaining wages, and employer-paid comprehensive benefits.

These hotels require the highest standards of their employees and BEST trains to these standards. Local 26 members and their adult dependents take our classes as part of their education and training benefit plan.
