Unite Here rallies support for housekeepers fired by Hyatt

NYHTC - November 30, 2009 Share/Save/Bookmark

Despite their firings from three Boston Hyatts at the end of August 2009, the almost 100 housekeepers who lost their jobs and their means of support have not been forgotten. Although all of them worked in non-union hotels, Unite Here has mounted an aggressive defense on their behalf and is spearheading an ambitious campaign to demand that Hyatt rehire them. One hundred rallies and vigils are planned across the United States and Canada through the month of November to put Hyatt Hotel Corporation's actions back in the limelight.
