At the Duke’s Waikiki restaurant located in the hotel, the non-union bartenders working at the bar were face to face with mask-less guests eating, drinking and talking at the bar. While the guests themselves were separated by Plexiglas, there was no Plexiglas barriers protecting the workers from guests not wearing masks. Local 5 union inspectors visited the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort on March 10th.

Union inspectors observed that the Duke’s restaurant hostess desk did not have Plexiglas in the front section facing the guests/entry direction, but there was a smaller piece of Plexiglas to the side of the hostess desk and a wooden bench placed in front preventing guests from standing right up against the hostess desk.
