Vote Hyatt the worst!
July 24th, 2012
Time and again, hotel workers have stood by healthcare workers when we needed them the most. At NUHW, we deeply appreciate their solidarity.
As healthcare workers, we understand that just like hospitals and nursing homes, hotels require the labor and dedication of thousands of workers to keep their doors open.
Now, Hyatt housekeepers are asking for our help as they launch a global boycott of Hyatt.
Why is Hyatt the worst?
Hyatt has replaced career housekeepers with temp workers earning minimum wage. Hyatt housekeepers have heavy workloads that can lead to debilitating pain and injuries. Hyatt has fired women shortly after they have spoken out about abuse and indignities at work. And Hyatt even turned heat lamps on workers protesting these conditions during a brutal Chicago heat wave.
Will you add your voice and Vote Hyatt the Worst By joining together, we will urge Hyatt to change its ways.
