#slavefreetrade.org is very pleased to see this positive news from Thomson Reuter’s humanitarian affairs correspondent, Lin Taylor (@linnytayls):

Major hotel groups, including the Hilton and Shiva Hotels, will pledge to examine their supply chains for forced labour, train staff how to spot and report signs of trafficking, and raise awareness of the issue among hotel guests.”
