UNITE-HERE
"Hotel Workers Rising: Standing with the Hyatt 100"

On August 31, Hyatt fired its longtime housekeeping staff at its three
Boston-area hotels. Many of the fired housekeepers worked for their hotels
for over 20 years. Many were required to train their replacements before
being fired. Their replacements are being paid minimum wage. The firing of
the "Hyatt 100? housekeepers stands as the most dramatic example of Hyatt's
contributing to the nation's unemployment problem and healthcare crisis. The
incident has drawn the ire of workers and community leaders alike, including
Massachusetts Governor, Deval Patrick, who said that he would call on state
agencies to boycott the three Boston-area hotels if the housekeepers were
not recalled.
